Analog fax machines cannot be connected directly to a VOIP system without a digital converter (ATA), because analog fax machines use low-speed frequency modulations to transmit data over the phone, while VOIP systems use high-speed digital data transmission protocols.

To enable an analog fax machine to work with a VOIP system, it is necessary to use an ATA adapter that converts the analog data into digital data that can be transmitted over the VOIP network. In this way, analog faxes can be used with the advantages of the VOIP system.
Overall, using a fax machine on a VoIP system is a convenient and cost-effective way to send and receive faxes, as it allows users to send and receive faxes over the Internet rather than through a traditional phone line.
