The Diamond_SupraMax_56K_USB_Modem is a phone-type networking device, which uses a USB interface to transfer 56Kbps speeds to the host machine. The modem gives users the advantage of analog internet access, with faster speeds than earlier modems. This is enabled by improved speeds of data transfers, faster dial-up connections and superior compression algorithms that enables users to send executable files, HTML files and emails more efficiently. With the modem, incoming voice calls do not disrupt the modem internet connections. In addition, the modem is backward compatible since it is designed to match the V.92 and the V.92 standards. The data compression features in this modem include the V.44bis, MNP5 and V.42bis. It also has backward compatible and V.34 protocols. The modem's fax connection speeds are up to 14, 4000 bits per second, which are enabled by a fully featured fax and data external modem.
