The data fax machine is a very functional machine which is beneficial to the user especially because of its security and reliability. It uses the antiquated technology of telephone lines while still utilizing the modern digital enhancements. Its system is not so complicated and it results in immediate information transmission. The sending data fax modem first dials a phone number and then sends a white noise audio signal via the telephone line or internet to the receiving data fax modem and then awaits the reception confirmation. Both modems communicate to each other giving information of what they are (digital or analog) and then confirm that the telephone line can allow correct transmission. Both modems then have to conclude on the data type compression that they will use and the speed of sending the information. The techniques of compression will be dependent on classification of the data fax modem.

The attached data or a scanned image will be digitally compressed and then sent as sequence of analog signals to be digitally uncompressed by the data fax modem that is receiving the information. The receiving unit immediately starts getting data or it will inform the sending unit that it has interference. The sending unit will then reduce the transmission speed. The receiving data fax modem will obtain information for each page and gets a specialized audio signal if the is a page break and gets a final analog signal from the sending machine informing it that all the information has been sent.
