Almost every fax machine in the world is connected to an analog telephone line, or an analog output of a telephone exchange (PBX). When the choice for a Fax Server is made, the Fax Servers Octo is a logical choice because this model is connected to the analog lines that are already in use.
After installation, you really experience the difference between a Fax server and an old-fashioned fax machine. Paper, maintenance and toner are no longer needed.
What is actually even more interesting; faxes can be sent from any PC, incoming faxes are automatically forwarded to the correct e-mail address and all sent and received faxes are stored in an extensive database. Like all Fax Servers provided by us, the Fax Server Octo comes with an unlimited software license, no matter if there are 10 or 100 people using the Fax Server. So, …. no hidden costs afterwards.
Connect the telephone lines
The Fax Server is connected to the telephone lines. The telephone line is connected to the IN socket (right) and possible other devices, such as traditional fax machines, and connected to the OUT socket (left). All lines can be connected in the same way.
Octo without other devices
The scheme is an example of the possible setup of the Fax Server Octo without other equipment behind it. This is called the “stand-alone” function.
