TECHNICAL PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
This chapter explains how the V.29 modem works., and how it interfaces with
transmission lines to send and receive data.
The V.29 modem normally operates unattended except for normal monitoring of
indicator lamps. Each local and remote modem is automatically synchronized if
output rate quality degrades during operation. The input and output data rate is
normally 9600 bps. It is possible for the unit to switch down automatically to a
