USRobotics 56K Professional Message Modem
The V.92 standard is an exciting advancement in 56K technology. V.92 offers three functions to enhance the current V.90 standard.
The first enhancement is the "V.PCM-Upstream" technology, which allows a modem's upstream communication to reach speeds of 48,000 bps. The V.90 standard, limited upstream speeds to 31,200 bps.
The second enhancement is Quick Connect, which permits quicker dial-up connections by allowing the modem to remember the line conditions of a service provider that supports V.92. The first time that you connect with your service provider, the modem will perform the full training sequence and store the information it receives. This eliminates the need for the modem to go through the full training sequence during subsequent connection attempts reducing the connection time by 30 - 50%. If the modem is unable to make an optimal connection any time after the initial attempt, the modem will perform the full training sequence.
The third enhancement is the "Modem On Hold" technology, which allows your Internet connection to be suspended when there is an inbound telephone call. You can then return to the connection when the call is completed without losing the connection. If you are connecting to a service provider that supports V.92, you will receive a message informing you of an incoming call. *† In addition, if you subscribe to Caller ID service, the number of the incoming call will be displayed in the computer's message window. You will then have the option to accept the call or to ignore it. If you are connecting to a V.92 server and choose to accept the call, another message will appear notifying you of the length of time that the provider's system will wait on hold before the data connection is terminated. If you are connecting to a server that does not support V.92, you will receive a message informing you of an incoming call. You will then have the option to accept the call or to ignore it. If you choose to accept the call, your data connection will be terminated.
Included on the Installation CD-ROM is the ControlCenter software. The ControlCenter software allows you to easily configure the settings of your new V.92 modem and automatically notifies you of any updates to your modem's code. The manual for the ControlCenter software can be accessed through a link within the ControlCenter interface.
