Description: A majority of large U.S. corporations have transitioned their communication infrastructure to IP networking primarily for voice (VoIP), but also videoconferencing, instant messaging, and other applications. The cost savings, productivity enhancements, simplified administration, and other benefits of IP make this migration a sound business strategy with one possible exception: fax. Many of these corporations understandably assumed that in their adoption of such a unified communications (UC) platform, fax would also make a seamless transition. But these businesses quickly discovered usually only after the migration that IP presents unique technological challenges for fax that make the newer systems even more trouble-prone than legacy, analog fax infrastructures. Fortunately, there is a cost-effective, convenient solution for businesses that have tried and failed to make fax work on their IP platform. That solution is cloud fax.
