Are faxes sent sequentially from one extension?

If I'm using the fax api to send 10 faxes in 1 minute from a single extension, are these sent sequentially or in parallel?

They will be on the queue and most probably sent sequentially.

As per I know, API calls are sequential and fax should be send one after another depending upon the number of times you called the API.

Until and unless you use any logic to make it parallel using coding, for example from a Java code you can call the APIs parallel 10 times or from a Mulesoft code I can call api 10 times with scatter gather coding, default should be sequential.

I meant once it is queued with RingCentral. Does RingCentral send them sequentially or parallel because its from one extension?

It should be sequential. A queue concept is always sequential

So in order to send at the same time I would need multiple extensions?
