I'm looking for a HARDWARE FAX/EMAIL gateway device.
As I don't have copper connection between comms rooms (it's fibre only) I have to use IP Network (BT copper presentation is only available in 'main' comms room). We have IP phones provided via a Draytec 3500 system located in main comms room.
I now need a fax facility in one of the offices served from the 'new' comms room. I don't want to use a 3rd party. I have copper analogue phone line available in main comms room.
Question is, what do you recommend as the fax/emai gateway box?
I'll need it to receive incoming fax, convert to email and forward to a remote Exchange server via bog standard SMTP (don't ask!) ... that's easy enough.
To send faxes I'd prefer a 'printer' type interface ie. produce fax and then just 'print' it to the fax/email gateway.
I only need a single fax line.
I've come across this http://uk.farnell.com/jsp/search/productdetail.jsp?sku=1797804&CMP=KNC-GUK-FUK-GEN-SKU-OTH&s_kwcid=TC|13123|ff130-eu||S|e|8220900549
.... at £600 it's kind of pricy.
