A CDE Definition
A device that tests a phone line for a fax signal and routes the call to the fax machine. When a fax machine dials a number and the line answers, it emits an 1100Hz signal (CNG tone) to identify itself. Some devices handle voice, fax and data modem switching and may require keying in an extension number to switch to the modem. See CNG tone.
An 1100Hz tone transmitted by a fax machine when it calls another fax machine. The half-second tone is repeated every 3.5 seconds for approximately 45 seconds. See fax switch.
