Telephone System Integration - Analog

Integrating Telephone Systems

DPD International offers a range of third party, fax modem solutions for connecting GoldFax to any telephone environment: analog, analog DID, digital T1/E1, and Fax Over IP.

Sending and receiving faxes over analog phone lines or PBX extensions

RJ11 wall socket GoldFax can connect up to one or more analog phone lines or extensions through a fax modem - which can be an external serial or USB device (MultiTech) or through a fax modem board (Dialogic Brooktrout) that is inside your server. The phone connection uses the same type of plug that a phone uses (RJ11). The phone cable from the fax modem can go into a wall plug or into a connection in your PBX telephone room. TruFax

Analog or BRI ISDN fax modems /boards

Analog fax boards are available with 1 to 8 fax line connections. The speed can be V.17 (14.4Kps) or V.34 (33.6 Kps). When fax machines and fax boards first connect to each other you hear the squeal and squawk sounds where they negotiate the speed at which they will communicate.

GoldFax can dial a fax number on an analog, direct outside line or through any phone system. It can be set to dial a 9 before it makes any call and drops the area code from any local phone call it makes.

Receiving faxes is just as easy. The fax modem / board answers the phone call, gets the fax pages that were sent, passes it to GoldFax which converts it into a PDF or TIFF image. The fax can be sent to a specific user's mailbox, email distribution list, network folder, GoldFax Client Inbox, or any network printer.

Analog DID fax modems

GoldFax can route faxes received based on DID numbers or DTMF tones from your PBX telephone system directly to people's email Inboxes or to specific folders on your network.

Other fax modems

GoldFax also supports most Class 2 fax modems.
