What is a Modem?
A modem is a device that translates the digital signals from
your computer into analog signals that can travel over a standard
phone line. A modem on the other end of the line can understand
it and converts the sounds back into digital information.Modems
come in different speeds and are measured in bps or bits per
second. A 28.8 Kbps modem transmits data at speeds up to 28,800
bits per second. A 56 Kbps modem is twice as fast, sending
and receiving data at a rate of up to 56,000 bits per second.
Most modems today are 56 Kbps.
