Beginning in August, Oki Data Americas Inc.'s Okifax 5950 Internet fax
systems will be equipped with T.38 protocol technology that can immediately
inform users that their fax went through, as long as the other system is
similarly equipped, according to the company.
The T.38 protocol enables users to communicate via managed IP networks
and the Internet in real time as opposed to the traditional store-and-forward
Internet fax protocol.
Internet faxes eliminate the need for dedicated phone lines as well
as charges for international and long-distance calls from traditional fax
machines, said Dennis Paris, senior marketing manager for the Mount Laurel,
The 5950 series also features 600 dots-per-inch scanning and transmission
capabilities that produce scanned images nearly identical to the original,
Oki Data products are available exclusively through resellers and are
currently being used in the departments of Transportation and Justice as
well as the National Institutes of Health.
The Okifax 5950 T.38 has a list price of $3,799, and other machines
in the 5950 series are comparably priced.
