In an xDSL broadband Internet connection, the xDSL modem is in the customer's premises, and is used to
encode signals sent over the xDSL channel to the ISP
and decode signals received from the ISP.
Modem is a contraction
of modulator/demodulator, which transforms a digital bit stream into an
analogue signal (in the modulator), and vice versa (in the
demodulator) so that the digital signal can be passed over
an analogue channel.
