Agere Systems AC'97 Modem v2134D is a modem produced by Agere Systems. A modem is an appliance which adapts analog information to encode digital data and change it back to analog to decode the information that has been transmitted. The encoding of information to a form that can be easily transmitted makes it easy for one to transmit information quickly and easily. AC' 97 is the shortened version of Audio Codec '97, a standard used mostly on motherboards, sound cards and modems. It is also known as MC'97, the acronym for Modem Codec '97. This standard refers to the signals which are being encoded as well as decoded to and from the form of analog audio to the digital audio form. Therefore, it is a joint audio AD/DA-converter. AC'97 consists of a high quality audio architecture which is 16 or 20-bit. It gives the PC surround sound support commonly used on desktop platforms.

Nowadays, modems are used to enable linkage to the Internet Service Provider (ISP) which in turn enables connection to the Internet. With the internet, one can then connect to all computers worldwide. Today's standard modem has two functional parts; the analog section which generates signals and operates the phone and the digital section which facilitates set up as well as control. The dual functionality is integrated into one chip but in theory, the two divisions remain. When operational, the modem can therefore be in either mode; Data mode whereby data is transmitted across the computer via telephone lines and the command mode whereby the modem pays attention to the computer data to locate any commands and carries out all the identified commands. The modem is usually powered up, takes up the command mode and transmits the command to dial up a number. Automatically, the modem assumes data mode and it becomes possible to send as well as receive data.
