Understanding modem/fax over SIP ITSP PSTN

Hello All

I am trying to get my head around modem/fax over a sip provider.

If I am going over the SIP PSTN I will never really know what the terminating device is.

If that is the case then I can't use modem passthrough "NSE" command, is that right?

What can  I use to pass modem and or fax via the SIP PSTN?

SIP ITSP <---(SIP)--CUBE/CME<---(signallling protocol?)<--vg204<--modem/fax.

Can the signalling protocol between cme and vg204 be SCCP or will it need to be SIP?

If sccp then I beleive I can use fax protocol passthrough but then I will have a problem with modems.

Thanks in advance for you assistance.
