 Learn about Computer Telephony (Dialogic)
  "In simplest terms, computer telephony is the technique of coordinating the actions of telephone and computer systems. This technology has existed in commercial form since the mid-1980s, but it has been exploited only in a few niche markets -- particularly in large call centers, where call volumes easily justified the cost of complex custom-built systems. But in the 1990s, several factors have combined to significantly simplify computer-telephone systems and increase the marketplace's interest in computer telephony. International standards for interconnecting telephone and computer systems have been defined, notably the Computer-Supported Telephony Application (CSTA) call modeling and protocol standards from ECMA. Mass-market application programming interface (API) specifications have been heavily promoted by major market players such as Microsoft and Novell, and are gaining rapid acceptance. Voice processing technologies have advanced steadily, providing advanced features and high port densities at attractive prices. Public networks are offering more and more services which enable computer-telephone applications, such as Calling Line ID. And most important, the world economy is doing business over the telephone at an increasing rate, prompting business organizations to look for ways to make this process more efficient and economical."

 comp.dcom.fax FAQ
 FAQ Fax Servers (Davidson Consulting)
  Fax servers are shared fax resources installed on LAN and multi-user computer networks. They typically are installed on a gateway PC or file server and they enable network users to (1) Have computer files transmitted as faxes to any fax machine or device in the world; (2) Receive faxes from any fax machine or device in the world at the fax server (where the fax phone call terminates) either for automatic print-out or to be routed via some mechanism to fax or universal-message mailboxes associated with each individual end user (or department or workgroup) on the LAN. Faxes are received as faxes -- image files! -- not as computer-editable alphanumerics
 FAQ: How can I send a fax from the Internet? (Kevin Savetz)
  There are many services that will let you use the Internet to send a fax. Some are free while others are pay services. Most services require that you can send and receive electronic mail, or that you have Web access. Some require that you install special software on your computer (these are listed in the "Faxing from the Desktop" section.) Other Internet services that are available include conversion of incoming faxes to e-mail. That is, when you receive a fax at a special number, the fax is scanned and sent to your e-mail address. Other commercial services include bulk faxing, and web page form input to fax.
