The PCtel Serial Wave Device modem is an electronic device which converts a computer's digital signals to specific frequencies to be able to travel over television or cable lines. The destination modem demodulates the frequencies back into digital signal. Modems are used by computers to be able to communicate with other networks. Businesses now require more bandwidth especially for uploading large files or programs to the Internet. Other modems need cable TV wiring rather than a phone line to provide Internet connectivity. The PCtel Serial Wave Device can record and play to the Windows wave device. It is capable of supporting telephone answering machine functions. It also includes functions to be able to dial or answer calls using the sound card of the user's microphone and speakers or headphones.
