Hi, I'm looking for a cheap t.37 fax machine. I don't care if it has a regular phone port at all. In this case, I want to have a fax that looks and feels like a regular fax, but uses the internet. So a user would put in a phone number and click send.
I know there are machines for > $1500 that do this (and they are mid-high throughput machines which also offer regular faxing, t.38, etc). We do far less faxing.
While I am happy _personally_ to use more complicated means, I want to dump the older fax machine in the office entirely and the only way to do that is to replace it with something that works identically. I know that in the background the fax machine will scan the fax, convert it to a TIFF, attach it to an email, and forward it to a fax gateway which will fax it to the final destination.
Really the only advantage to this is the removal of a phone line. I'm only considering this as we need to get a new low-end fax machine anyway and this would seem to be a more elegant solution. I realise other advantages might be faxing straight to client email addresses, and storing email-style copies of all faxes sent.
What are the least expensive t.37 fax machines? anyone know?
Thanks, Greg ps. I'm coming to the conclusion that maybe i should look at a cheap t38 machine for FoIP? T.37 seems more elegant but less popular.
