G3 Fax over GSM

Started by Denis Gleeson October 5, 2004
Hello all

What are the capabilities of GSM when it comes to Fax transmission.
I have seen PSTN to GSM boxes that do FAX transmission.

This one
http://www.sagem.com/en/produits-en/systemes-radiocom-en/rt3000-en.htm
does Analog G3 fax:9600bps.

SO I assume we can connect the PSTN connection coming from our fax
machine
to the input of this device.

This seems to be a special capability of GSM where it appears the
Analog data from the fax machine is only digitised before transmission
as opposed to going through a voice codec as would normally happen.

Can someone enlighten me on this or point me at details in standards
etc.

Many thanks for all replies.
