looking at their other offerings, I would guess that its a four port
asterisk box with IAX modem connecting to hylafax to "receive" the
inbound fax and then send it to their "datacenter" hyalafax server(s)
for onward transmission using the "proxy" feature in jobcontrol,
inbound would work in the same way but the other way around. The AES
256 encryption could well just be SSL...

not a bad solution if you must have fax and don't have PSTN (or ISDN)
connectivity, but as its store and forward, I'm not sure how it plays
out legally...
