The fax modem speed is the speed of transmission that fax documents are sent. Model speed is measured in kilobytes per second (Kbps)
The fax modems are available supporting communication speeds of:
14.4K bps (approx. 6-9 sec/page)*
33.6K bps (also known as Super G3) (approx. 2-3 sec/page)*
The faster the modem speed, the faster a fax document can be sent.
Buying a machine with a faster modem may also reduce phone costs if you typically transmit lengthy fax documents, particularly overseas.
*Based on Brother #1 Chart with highest available coding method and standard resolution
All Brother models also support fax broadcasting, which enables you to scan a fax into memory, the fax can then be sent to multiple locations. The number of locations will vary by model, so consider the fax broadcasting capacity when selecting a model if this is an application you'll make use of.
This feature will save you time and hassle by allowing you to send your fax document to multiple locations in one operation.
Auto Fax Reduction
The MFC automatically reduces each page of an incoming fax to fit on one page of A4, Letter, Legal or Folio size paper. The MFC calculates the reduction ratio by using the paper size of the fax and your paper size setting.
You can dial a number and start scanning the fax into memory- even when the machine is sending from memory, receiving faxes or printing PC data. (Black & White only)
Fax/voice call detection
All Brother fax machines have the ability to distinguish between incoming fax and voice calls so you can use all of our faxes with a single phone line. You can choose the answer mode best suited to handle your incoming calls.
All Brother MFC machines include a speed dialing capacity to automate the dialing process further. Not only do these features enable you to dial more quickly, they also help eliminate misdialed numbers. When selecting a fax machine, consider how many people you fax to on a regular basis, and choose a model with an auto dial capacity that meets your needs.
