Learn Fax Protocols and Testing

Fax technology training gets your engineering and test personnel up to speed on the fax protocol and testing issues surrounding it in a fraction of the time traditional methods take. QualityLogic’s Fax Technology Training shaves months off your team’s learning curves. The course covers:

  • T.30 protocol
  • V.34 changes
  • Practical aspects of implementation
  • T.38 Internet Fax

If you work in Engineering or QA on MFP terminal or telecom/VoIP products that have a fax component, or if you troubleshoot fax calls, don’t miss our next Fax Technology Class. Now, we’ve added coverage of T.38 and V.34 issues to the in-depth practical discussion of the T.30 protocol.

A minimal level of T.30 knowledge and experience from participants is helpful. The primary target audience for this training is the engineering community who creates and services telecom and terminal equipment that conveys facsimile transmissions. It is also informative for anyone who makes design and/or marketing decisions about facsimile terminals or carrier equipment. The content is presented using a combination of whiteboard drawings, PowerPoint slides and the use of the QualityLogic fax test tools, FaxLab, DataProbe T30 Analyzer, and DataProbe T30-T38 Analyzer.

Two-day open enrollment courses are periodically scheduled in Southern California, Asia, and Europe, or request a class at your site.
