Does anyone in this NG have any experience or ideas as to how a fax machine
can be connected to a CDMA telephone for use in a vehicle?

G'day

Im not sure about connecting a fax directly to a standard CDMA telphone
but you can by a device called a "fixed Cellular Terminal". These are a
black box basically with a mobile phone anteanna and a phone socket on
them (and with a SIM card for GSM models). Depending on the model you
can plug any type of telhone equipment into them and use them wherever
you have signal.

They're not really all that cheap though and a fair bit larger than a
standard modern mobile. I forget the name of the mob who make them, but
I'll post later if I remmenber.

G'day John,

CDMA via Internet to Notebook, via a service like ozefaz.com.au (which I
use), and it falls out your inbox as a pdf file. You can select any
capital city for the incoming phone number.

If you need it printed (and do you really need this these days?) then
you need a printer that will run from car power or batteries.

And if you want to send a fax, it is all in place with the above. Send
from your email program, or windows app., to any number world wide.

The most expensive part is the CDMA ISP connection. I think you are
pretty much tied into Tel$tra.

Re: Vehicle fax operation


I'm not sure about fax calls, but data calls to a CDMA mobile are not
useable by a standard modem. They are not just the 'analogue' fax
signal over CDMA, they are using the digital signal as a digital
signal.

Even if you could hook the analogue output of a CDMA handset to a fax,
the data rate would be very slow, given the codec data rate is
14.4kbps.

To use a fax on CDMA, I think you would need a separate number for that
service that tells the network to terminate the fax call somewhere else
and forward the data to the handset. In this respect, the handset looks
like a modem, which means that it would need to connect to a PC, and
not be able to connect directly to a fax. I'm assuming a normal PSTN
fax, as I don't know if there is a specialised fax for this type of
requirement.

Similar to someone else's suggestion, you will need a laptop and a
printer to get something like this working (I think).

Dale.
