1. Introduction

Fax machines may seem like relics of the past, but they still have a loyal fan base who appreciate the convenience and security of sending and receiving documents via phone lines. However, faxing is not immune to the digital transformation that has swept across many industries and sectors. Nowadays, more and more people are opting for digital fax solutions, such as Fax over IP (FoIP), fax to email and email to fax services. These solutions offer many advantages over traditional fax machines, such as lower costs, faster transmission, better quality, and environmental friendliness.
