Data fax modems function by dialing a number and then sending a white noise audio signal through the Internet or phone line to the other data fax modem. The sending modem then waits for verification from the receiving modem. Afterwards, the modems carry out the handshake process wherein each lets the other know the kind of data fax they belong to such as digital or analog, and then verify that phone line can make an accurate transmission.
