NEEDHAM, Mass. -- Brooktrout Technology, Inc., a leading supplier of media processing and call control products, today announced that it has dramatically simplified fax servers for voice-over-IP networks by teaming with several of its partners to deliver the SR140(TM) real-time Fax over IP (FoIP) software-only fax solution. In conjunction with network fax applications from companies including Arcosoft, AVM Informatique, Cascom, FaxBack, FaxCore, Inc., SoftLinx, Systems Solutions, and RTE, Brooktrout's IP-based SR140 provides the same level of simplicity and confirmation as a traditional PSTN-based fax solution, but with the added benefits of transmitting fax over VoIP networks.

"Companies that have made the move to VoIP want to fully benefit from the cost savings of a single converged communications network and are dissatisfied with band-aid approaches such as G.711 pass through or analog adapters," said Rene van Stekelenburg, Managing Director of Cascom ( "SR140 enables us to offer an elegant solution to the problem of integrating fax servers into the VoIP mix."

"As enterprises migrate to VoIP, reliability is the name of the game. We support Brooktrout IP in our NET SatisFAXtion fax server to take advantage of Brooktrout technology and reliability. For years Brooktrout's fax solutions have proven to be winners for our customers. Brooktrout IP continues this track record," said Art King, President of FaxBack (

"The SR140 preserves the same high quality fax experience enterprises have come to expect, giving them real-time transmission and confirmation they get from their Brooktrout fax boards, along with the simplicity and cost savings of consolidating their fax traffic on their VoIP network," said Max Schroeder, Sr. Vice President of FaxCore, Inc. (

"With Brooktrout IP Fax software, IP fax is now ready for prime time," said Ivor Livingston, System Solutions CEO ( "With no boards to configure, users get a Fax Server with a robust and forgiving T.30 protocol engine without the complexity and maintenance costs associated with traditional hardware based fax servers."
