What is V.92?--V.92 is a new standard for dial-up communications that offers several important improvements over the existing V.90 standard. These improvements are intended to make communications faster, easier and more enjoyable.
What are the major improvements in V.92 technology?--The V.92 performance improvements are as follows:
Quick Connect -- Shortens the time it takes to dial and make a connection by remembering the phone line characteristics.
Modem-On-Hold -- Many households use the same phone line for both voice calls and data (Internet), so when the user is browsing the Internet, an incoming call cannot get through. MOH allows you to receive an incoming call and stay connected to the Internet (requires call-waiting).
V.44 Compression -- A new data-compression protocol that delivers data rates 10% to 120% faster than those achieved by the existing V.42bis compression protocol.
Do I need any special equipment to use V.92?--Yes, you need a V.92 compliant modem. You'll need call-waiting service from your phone company to use the Modem-On-Hold feature.
