(3) Modern is modulator/demodulator. Modem is used to connect computer to internet. Modems convert digital data to analog data and vice-a-versa.
(4) They have two advantages:
(a) Modem allows higher speed of transmission on any given analog line.
(b) Modem reduce effect of noise and distortion.
(5) The function of modem is described by following figure.

(6) Modems are classified into two categories according to transmission method :
(a) Asynchronous modems
(b) Synchronous modems
