A modem (Modulator/Demodulator) is a device that modulates an analog carrier signal to encode digital information, and also demodulates such a carrier signal to decode the transmitted information. The goal is to produce a signal that can be transmitted easily and decoded to reproduce the original digital data. These signals can be transmitted over telephone lines and demodulated by another modem at the receiver side to recover the digital data.
Modem are generally classified by the amount of data they can send in a given unit of time usually express in bits per second (bps)or bytes per second (B/s).
Today in Nigeria, we have different types of modem based on their manufacturer i.e HUAWEI, ZTE e.t.c. Modem can also be categorise based on the network to which they are locked to irrespective of their manufacturer i.e MTN, AIRTEL, GLO, STARCOMM, ETISALAT, e.t.c.
Some of these modem allows you to make and receive calls whereas some does not. Mind you, when a modem is locked to a SIM or a network, the modem doesn't allow you to make use of another SIM or network in it except for the one to which it is locked to; unless you unlock the modem.
