Abstract

Disclosed is a interrupt function for G3 facsimile. While a facsimile is receiving from or sending to another facsimile via an exchange, the third facsimile can communicate with one of those facsimiles by interrupting the current operation. When the exchange gets the call from the third facsimile, it switches the current telephone line into a new line and the third facsimile is able to send the document to the other one. After completion of the operation by the third facsimile, the previous operation will be performed again. This interrupt mechanism allows the facsimiles to communicate with one another even if the telephone line is busy.
