To connect Internet through telephone or telecommunications line a modem is required. It is a link between Internet service provider and browser. Our computer sends data in binary code to our modem which converts the binary-coded data to an analogue signal. This data then travels along the telephone network. When the data reaches the destination computer, the modem connected to that computer converts the analogue signal back into Binary coded data which can be read by destination computer. Thus the modem transmits data in pulse form over the network through telephone line needs modem which converts digital signal to analog signal and analog signal to digital signal. The speed of modem measures in EPS (Bits per Second).

 

There are two types of modems:

 

(i) External Modem and

(ii) Internal Modem.
