RFC 4142 on Full-mode Fax Profile for Internet Mail (FFPIM)
A new Request for Comments is now available in online RFC libraries.
Title: Full-mode Fax Profile for Internet Mail (FFPIM)
Author(s): D. Crocker, G. Klyne
Status: Standards Track
Date: November 2005
Mailbox: dcrocker@xxxxxxxx, GK-IETF@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I-D Tag: draft-ietf-fax-ffpim-09.txt
Classic facsimile document exchange represents both a set of
technical specifications and a class of service. Previous work has
replicated some of that service class as a profile within Internet
mail. The current specification defines "full mode" carriage of
facsimile data over the Internet, building upon that previous work
and adding the remaining functionality necessary for achieving
reliability and capability negotiation for Internet mail, on a par
with classic T.30 facsimile. These additional features are designed
to provide the highest level of interoperability with the
standards-compliant email infrastructure and mail user agents, while
providing a level of service that approximates what is currently
enjoyed by fax users.
This document is a product of the Internet Fax Working Group of the IETF.
This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements. Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol. Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
