The SupraExpress 288i SP is described as a high speed communication device that is designed to provide advanced telephony features to the host computer system. The telephony features incorporated into the modem are supported by a device driver which makes them available to the underlying operating system environment as well as the installed communication software applications in the host machine. The data modem feature implemented by the device driver is complimented by the fax and voice functionalities along with the deployment of a full duplex speakerphone feature. This means that the correct installation of the appropriate device driver can transform the host computer system into a complete communications center that can send and receive information. The full duplex speakerphone feature means that the computer user can talk with any person in the same manner as using any conventional telephone device. The implementation of this feature however may require the presence of an accompanying speaker system and microphone to control the audio data.
