AMI-CW52 V.92 PCI Modem is a product of Amigo Technology Inc. A modem is actually an acronym for modulator- demodulator in reference to the work that modems do. A modem is a device which modulates a carrier signal (analog) to encode digital information. Also, it can demodulate the carrier signal on being received, decoding the information that has been transmitted so that it is understood by the recipient. This data is transmitted over a standard dial-up telephone lines. PCI modems are those which are connected to the computer through PCI slots. PCI modems typically come with the drivers or enumerators which connect the PCI bus with the conventional COM ports. Modems function in a manner similar to a telephone. A modem will dial up a line and will answer calls. It will transform data from analog to digital formats and vice versa while at the same time controlling the speed of transmission.

AMI-CW52 V.92 PCI Modem uses the V.92 Modem standard. This is the latest modem standard from the International Telecommunication Union. It is an improvement on all the previous standards and downloads at a maximum speed of 56K. Some of the enhanced features include a reduction in the start up time, that is, the time that is required for the modem to secure a connection. Thus the user can connect to the internet and go off much more easily than ever before. The v.92 standard also comes with a standard disconnection method which enables the user to know if someone is trying to call them without the connection being lost; a feature known as Internet call waiting. The upload speed has also been improved in this device and moves from an initial speed of 33.6 K to the current speed of 48 K. This enhanced feature enables the modem to improve on functions such as video conferencing and other general uploading.
