UTS Policies: Modems
Important: Modem service will be discontinued as of June 30, 2013.
The University of Denver's modem pool may be used by active students, active employees, and retired employees as defined in the Network Access Policy. A current DU ID and passcode are required. For Windows dial-up networking, type your DU ID in the User name box and your passcode in the Password box.
Current DU IDs, also known as Banner IDs, are 9-digit numbers beginning with the digits 87.
- 303-376-0500 -- Accesses a pool of modems.
Modem pools have been upgraded to V.92, the new dial-up modem specification from the ITU (International Telecommunications Union). V.92 modem connections offer the following performance improvements:
- Modem-on-hold (MOH) allows for a dial-up connection to pause while an incoming call is answered or while a call is iniated by the user. This requires the user to have call waiting service enabled. DU’s policy is 5 minutes for MOH.
- V.44 compression protocol delivers data rates between 10 and 120 percent faster than those achieved by the existing V.42bis compression protocol.
- Quicker connect times. Preliminary tests show that, on average, connect times are 30 percent to 40 percent faster with V.92 than with V.90.
- PCM upstream boosts the data rates from the user to the ISP thereby reducing upload times for large files and e-mail attachments.
- NetWaiting (Similar to MOH) bundled with the Conexant V.92 modem chipset and driver allows the user to determine the status of an incoming call. This feature also requires the user to have call waiting service enabled.
DU modems support the following protocols:
Speed and Modulation:
- V.90 (56 kbps; however, because of FCC regulations, maximum speed is 53 kbps.)
- V.34 (33.6 and 28.8 kbps)
- V.32 Terbo (19.2 kbps)
- V.32bis (14.4 and 12 kbps; 9600, 7200 and 4800 bps)
- V.32 (9600 and 4800 bps)
- V.22bis (2400 bps)
- V.22 (1200 bps)
- Bell 212A (1200 bps)
- MNP 2-4
- MNP 5
