What is Modem?

By cavsi Category: Audio and Video Computing Networking Tags:

A modem modulates outgoing digital signals from a computer or other digital device to analog signals for a conventional copper twisted pair telephone line and demodulates the incoming analog signal and converts it to a digital signal for the digital device.

The most familiar example is a voiceband modem that turns the digital ‘1s and 0s’ of a personal computer into sounds that can be transmitted over the telephone lines of Plain Old Telephone Systems (POTS), and once received on the other side, converts those 1s and 0s back into a form used by a USB, Serial, or Network connection.

Modems are generally classified by the amount of data they can send in a given time, normally measured in bits per second, or “bps”.
