Project Category: #1 Best Open Source Project

GOfax.IP is a HylaFAX backend/connector providing Fax over IP support for HylaFAX using FreeSWITCH and SpanDSP through FreeSWITCH's mod_spandsp. In contrast to solutions like t38modem, iaxmodem and mod_spandsp's softmodem feature, GOfax.IP does not emulate fax modem devices but replaces HylaFAX's faxgetty and faxsend processes to communicate directly with FreeSWITCH using FreeSWITCH's Event Socket interface. GOfax.IP is designed to provide a standalone fax server together with HylaFAX and a minimal FreeSWITCH setup; the necessary FreeSWITCH configuration is provided.

Project Importance

Although fax communication, is in the general understanding less important, its especially in the the healthcare sector a mission-critical system, On the basis of that the ISDN technology (in germany) is switched off step by step, Gofax.IP allows a modern communication in the existing fax environment without much effort.

Project Impact

That many organizations need to find other, proprobaly non-open-source solutions for their fax requirements
