The Compaq PCMCIA 144 acts as a modem or a modulator-demodulator for a computer. A modem can be described as a device that allows users to transmit digital data from their computer to other computers connected through a network or the Internet via telephone lines. Computer data is stored in digital form; whereas data transmitted using telephone lines is transmitted in analog form. The modem comes in as a converter. The device converts digital data into analog form and back again into digital form. This means that a modem can send over the original data to other computers entirely without changing the original data. Modems are commonly used today to connect to the Internet. The Compaq PCMCIA 144 and its driver are provided by Compaq Computer Corporation, a well known American PC company that is now merged with another PC company, Hewlett-Packard.
