The SAGEM_MyC5-2v is a mobile device which can provide modem functionality when connected to a host computer system provided that the proper device driver is installed. The connection normally is hosted over a vacant Universal Serial Bus interface port to allow for faster data exchange between the host controller (Personal Computer) and the supported hardware component. GSM modems basically have the functionality of working with GSM networks to deliver the same services provided by conventional modems. The SAGEM_MyC5-2v implements a type of GPRS modem functionality which is essentially a kind of GPS modem variant. The main difference is the built-in support for GPRS technology allowing the successful integration of data transmission techniques. The device driver implements the specifications of the General Packet Radio Service to take advantage of packet switching technologies which are defined by most telecommunications experts as extensions of the GSM standards.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Essentially since GSM standards are based on circuit switching technology the GPRS modem implementation provided by the SAGEM_MyC5-2v and its corresponding device driver allows for faster data transmission speeds. The actual data transmission speed that can be attained by the supported hardware component would be dependent on a number of factors that can affect line quality. The GPRS standards supported by the SAGEM_MyC5-2v can also be used to transmit SMS messages that are commonly delivered via mobile telephone devices. According to some computer experts if an implementation of the SMS transmission is applied to a currently active GPRS based connection, approximately 30 messages per minute transmissions can be easily achieved. When compared to using the GSM standards, the transmission speed that can be attained is limited to ten messages per minute. In this context the device driver makes it possible for the host computer system to achieve relatively high data transmission rates using wireless communication technologies. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and SAGEM_MyC5-2v GPRS Modem errors before installing any driver updates.
