The Dialogic Brooktrout SR140 Fax Software provides Fax over IP (FoIP) capabilities for integrating fax servers and fax document management solutions with VoIP networks. The Brooktrout SR140 achieves the same high level of performance, reliability, and scalability as Dialogic Brooktrout fax boards have done for the last 20 years.
The Brooktrout SR140 can be deployed in SIP (session initiation protocol), H.323, and MGCP (Media Gateway Control Protocol) environments and provides native SIP and H.323 support. It has been successfully tested for interoperability with IP-PBX and VoIP gateways from leading vendors including Cisco, Avaya, Nortel, Alcatel, Siemens, Aastra, 3Com, Mitel, Linksys, Multi-tech, Quantum, Shoretel, and Dialogic. The software is suitable for a variety of network-based fax applications, and can be integrated with document management and business process automation systems to support compliance with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), and Basel II.
The Brooktrout SR140 is available in densities ranging from 2 to 60 channels per device and can support up to 120 ports in a single server. Additional channels can be installed with software license keys. The product has global approvals from throughout the world.
The Brooktrout SR140 is all software so there are no fax boards to install or maintain. Processing fax without boards reduces complexity and simplifies deployment, logistics, and upgrades, which are accomplished with software downloads. The need to stock spare boards is eliminated. The SR140 uses the same field-proven T.30 protocol stack as the Dialogic Brooktrout TR1034 Fax Board. Basing FoIP on the same T.30 protocol that has been thoroughly field-tested and adapted so it works with numerous T.30 variants ensures a high level of reliability and enables new T.38-based fax devices to communicate with legacy T.30-based fax devices. The SR140 is based on a lightweight, high-performance fax engine that allows easy scalability for FoIP with low CPU (central processing unit) utilization. The SR140 also supports Dialogic's patented DID (direct-inward dial) inbound fax routing which enables the Brooktrout SR140 to route faxes directly to specific users for fax-to-email, unified messaging, fax document management, workflow and document delivery, and compliance systems.
The SR140 uses the same application programming interface (Dialogic Bfv API) as the conventional Dialogic Brooktrout fax boards. An application written to the Dialogic Bfv API can be used with Dialogic Brooktrout fax hardware and software on both TDM and VoIP networks.
The SR140 sends and receives faxes at 33. Kbs. according to the ITU (International Telecommunications Union) V.34 standard. It also supports the V.8 standard for fast handshaking which can cut call setup and session management time by one-third.
