A Comprehensive Study and Performance Analysis of Facsimile Transmission Using GSM Fixed Wireless Terminal
Facsimile continues to be communication bedrock for transmitting sensitive business critical documents with legal standing. Traditional facsimile uses PSTN network for communication. As the mobile technology advances, fixed wireless terminals are being used to connect landline devices such as telephone, fax machines etc and transmit using the mobile phone networks. Fixed wireless terminals are used in locations where traditional landline infrastructure is unavailable. This paper presents the performance analysis of facsimile transmission using GSM fixed wireless terminal under varying conditions to determine the margins of the network parameters that enable successful communication. The metrics Facsimile Satisfactory Rate parameter was used for the evaluation of the quality of facsimile transmission using GSM fixed wireless terminal.
