  • MacMall Part #: 7088759 
  • Manufacturer Part #: 2985-00-00CF 
  • Platform: PC 

The Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB Model 2985 utilizes the capabilities of a computer's Universal Serial Bus for the fastest and most convenient modem hookup yet! Using the included USB cable, just plug the Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB into your PC, you don't even have to shut down the computer. The new modem will then be installed automatically and you'll be ready for fast, reliable access to the Internet, and other dial-up modems. Configuration is automatic and without the potential conflicts of an RS-232 serial port or an internal modem. The Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB doesn't even need an external power supply. It gets its power from the USB port itself.

The performance of the Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB can be significantly better than that of conventional 56K modems that connect to a computer through a serial port. The modem is capable of receiving data from an Internet Service Provider (ISP), online service, or corporate LAN over standard phone lines at speeds up to 56 Kbps uncompressed or 230.4 Kbps with compression. Outgoing data is transmitted at normal modem speeds of up to 33.6 Kbps.

The Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB is Dualmode; supporting both the V.90 ITU Standard and K56flex, the commonly used pre-standard 56K technology. The modem automatically selects V.90, K56flex or 33.6 Kbps or slower speed to achieve the fastest compatible connection speed.

The Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB features a reprogrammable Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and flash memory for downloading modem code updates. Like all Zoom Dualmode modems, the Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB includes V.80 capability for compatibility with H.324 standard point-to-point video telephony over regular phone lines. Additional features include Zoom's Channel 2 Call Waiting support which allows selective answering of incoming voice calls during Web browsing. The Channel 2 feature works in conjunction with the Call Waiting service available from most phone companies. It functions with all ISPs (including AOL) and popular browsers.

The Model 2985 also features ZoomGuard. ZoomGuard provides superior protection against lightning, the number one cause of modem failure. ZoomGuard is not only better than the "varistor" protection found on other modems, but also outperforms most stand-alone surge protectors.
