Windows device driver information for Bluetooth FAX

The Bluetooth Fax profile can be compared in much the same way as a DUN profile. This allows a device to send a fax by using another Bluetooth device. This device works as a gateway device. Usually, computers use mobile phones or dial-up modems as a fax modem that connects it to cellular networks or fixed telephone networks. To use this service, it is a must that a subscription for fax sending and receiving services be obtained. In the same manner as the Bluetooth FAX profile, the Dial-Up Networking Profile or DUN characterizes how a Bluetooth device can use a modem that is physically connected to another Bluetooth device to open a public network. These networks are known as GPRS, EDGE, 3G, EV-DO, HSDPA or fixed telephone networks such as PSTN and or ISDN using a mobile phone as modem, or dial-up modem.

The computer operates as a terminal for data transmission. Other devices, such as the mobile phones or the dial-up modem, on the other hand, operate as a gateway device. This service can only be utilized by using mobile Internet or dial-up Internet access. A typical fax machine on the other end connects to a fixed telephone network (PSTN). In order to send fax through Bluetooth, a software like WinFax helps in sending and receiving fax from the computer. Users may also utilize a built-in fax application in Windows. However, personal digital assistants (PDAs) or smart phone devices have the built-in fax capability to send and receive fax. The only thing left to do is to get the right fax modem for a device and have a fax service subscription. These are important for mobile workers because both profiles provide connectivity even though they are on constant move or have no access to a fixed telephone network. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Bluetooth FAX errors before installing any driver updates.
