A modem is a device used for the process of modulating and demodulating. In short, modem is the abbreviation for modulator and demodulator. This device modulates an analog carrier signal and encodes the digital information sent in the signal. It further demodulates carrier signal in its bid to decode the information, which has been transmitted. The function of an internet modem is to produce a signal, which can be sent over the Internet and reproduce the original date to be displayed on the monitors.
The modem is needed to set-up an effective network connection for a PC. The unit of measurement for signal activities that is used for conveying data transmission is bits per second, abbreviated as bps. The another way to measure the data transmitted is the symbol rate measured in baud, which is the number of times the modem has switched its signal state per second. The different types of Internet modems available in the market are cable, digital and dial-up modems.
