Independent Software Vendors Can Now Offer A Complete Fax Solution With T38Fax's Reliable FoIP Service

Posted by Dana Meltzer on Aug 15, 2017 10:00:00 AM

Do you remember the good old days, when things were simple? In the early days of fax, you used physical fax boards and servers, connected to real, tangible ISDN PRI T1 lines. Traditional phone lines were circuit-switched, which is a fancy way of saying they were optimized to deliver perfect audio every time, independent of conditions. Faxing was error free. The physical hardware worked well.

 

Then came progress. And three things happened to disrupt the status quo:

T38Fax Incorporated and VoIP Innovations: A Partnership Worth Experiencing

Posted by Natalie DeCario on Jul 14, 2017 3:03:49 PM

Guest author, Natalie DeCario, is the Marketing Manager at VoIP Innovations, a wholesale VoIP provider that specializes in providing Origination, Termination, E911, Hosted Billing, Fraud Detection, and an End User Portal.

 

Some will argue that the key to an ITSP’s (Internet Telephony Service Provider) success is to add the combination of choice, automation, and control to their business strategy. This is especially important when trying to reduce the time it takes to keep up with the clerical, yet necessary tasks such as billing customers, porting DIDs, and originating and terminating DIDs. While these tasks keep an ITSP afloat, they are also causing owners to slow down their operations and over clutter their agenda with tactical efforts that take away from strategy and bottom line.

 

Fortunately, VoIP Innovations has created a platform that allows ITSPs to use technology to receive the choice,

T38Fax Joins Obihai's List of Compatible Service Providers

Posted by Dana Meltzer on Jun 1, 2017 12:45:04 PM

T38Fax is pleased to join Obihai’s list of compatible service providers. Obihai Technology is a leading manufacturer in the Voice over IP endpoint industry and maker of the best-selling OBi universal voice adapters and IP phones. They developed OBiTALK, a web portal and OBi configuration utility which helps OBi users configure devices and access applications.

 

Within the OBiTALK portal, Obihai offers a list of compatible service providers, which allows users to easily configure an OBi phone adaptor or IP phone with their specific provider. Using the OBiTALK portal, OBi device owners can select their service provider from this list and enter their credentials. Once a selection is made, the device is automatically configured to work with the service provider, and calls can be made and received within minutes. 

 

Service provider partners can also sign in to the OBiTALK ITSP Device Management Portal (DMP). This tool was designed for service providers, system integrators, and value-added resellers (VAR) to manage their OBi device deployments. It allows them to remotely and securely access and configure OBi devices from anywhere. When a service provider signs in to the OBiTALK portal, they can set up SIP registration and configure more advanced VoIP functions. This will eliminate the need to configure and re-package each device before sending it to the end user.

 

T38Fax is proud to be the only FoIP-specific service provider on the OBiTALK compatible service provider list. Our SIP trunks were designed by fax industry experts to solely offer T.38 Fax over IP call origination and termination. We have tested our integration in the OBiTALK portal and found that it offers an easy and straightforward way to

T38Fax - The FoIP Solution for Any Use Case Scenario

Posted by Dana Meltzer on May 18, 2017 11:25:46 AM

If you're reading this blog, then you rely on FoIP in some way, and it's likely causing you headaches. Maybe you're a single ATA user trying to fax with your current carrier, but not having much luck. Perhaps you have a fax server that won't work consistently now that you've upgraded your phone network to VoIP. Or you're a service provider that can't seem to provide reliable FoIP to your customers and fax support is causing you nightmares.

 

If you fit into any of these categories, then your business depends on FoIP, but you can't get it to work reliably. As you upgrade your communications infrastructure to SIP, fax support can get left behind. Finding a carrier that guarantees (and supports!!) T.38 on your service is almost impossible. If you’re a carrier or service provider, you know that successful T.38 requires significant investment in equipment and expertise and fax troubleshooting takes skill from seasoned fax experts.

 

Luckily, we can help! T38Fax provides reliable faxing and premium support over our SIP trunks, which were specifically designed for T.38. Whether you’re a single fax user, a business with a fax server or IP-PBX, or a hosted VoIP or SIP trunk vendor, our Power-T.38 service can work for you. Find your use-case scenario below and see how.
