Fax over IP (FoIP) refers to the process of sending and receiving faxes via a Voice over IP (VoIP) network – such as those from Cisco, Avaya, Alcatel-Lucent, and others.


More and more organizations have come to realize the cost savings and productivity benefits that derive from deploying a FoIP server that integrates with their existing equipment to route faxes over their IP network. In fact, even if an enterprise doesn’t have a VoIP network in place today, they can still implement FoIP and virtualize their fax servers through use of the Dialogic Brooktrout SR140 and OpenText Fax Gateway.

FoIP Benefits

  • Eliminate hardware dependency through software virtualization
  • Take advantage of existing IP infrastructure
  • Remove inter-company PSTN charges
  • Simplify disaster recovery by leveraging virtualization
  • Lower total equipment, maintenance and operating costs due to network consolidation
  • Reduce long distance costs and eliminate the need to maintain fax ports on your PBX system
