The manufacturer supplied device driver is also responsible for providing the software interface which allows the computer user to configure settings for the communication hardware. Properties like error control, compression, speed negotiation, and inactivity timer among others. These particular attributes control the behavior of the Creative Labs Phone Blaster Voice during runtime. The inactivity timer measures the amount of time that no data passes through the communication port occupied by the hardware. The compression method applied on the data packets that will be transmitted dictates the size of the packet. The process of compressing the data prior to transmission is done not only to make them smaller but also more secure. The device driver for the Creative Labs Phone Blaster Voice supports this security algorithm allowing for safe transmission of data even on unsecured communication lines. Compression also makes it easier to transmit data packets despite noisy transmission lines.
