Fax Studies suggest that 1/3 of all IP faxes fail. Over satellite, fax is even more unpredictable based on the quality of the satellite link. The SatFax device uses proprietary technology to send and receive fax over any network. Successfully. 100% of the time. Despite the network being optimized for VoIP or not. Regardless of packet loss, jitter or latency. Use a standard fax machine attached to our device and press send. It really is just that simple. Never resend a fax with the SatFax unit.
The SatFax Fax Terminal Adapter (FTA) has a RJ45 Ethernet connection that connects to your internet and 1 or more RJ11 jacks which connect to any fax machine. The user sends a fax normally, as the FTA emulates the fax machine on the other end of the line. The FTA receives the fax and stores it in memory. Once the fax has been received by the FTA, it converts it to a Digital format and sends it over the internet connection to the Virtutone servers. The Virtutone Servers then convert the fax back to the original format and sends the fax out over the regular phone lines to the receiving fax machine. Once the fax has been sent successfully, there is a confirmation sent back to the FTA, and the FTA sends a confirmation of the sent fax to the sending fax machine. The same procedure happens in reverse when sending a fax to a remote FTA.
