The word ‘modem’ is a contraction
A modem is a device that enables a computer to transmit data over telephone or cable lines. The word modem is actually a contraction of the words modulator and demodulator (MOdulator/DEModulator). Modems are usually classified by the amount of data they send in a specific unit of time expressed generally in bits per second.
