This document defines a Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP)
package to support fax calls.  The package allows for fax calls to
be supported in two different ways.  The first one utilizes ITU-T
Recommendation T.38 for fax relay under the control of the Call
Agent.  The second one lets the gateway decide upon a method for fax
transmission as well as handle the details of the fax call without
Call Agent involvement.  This memo provides information for the Internet
