The Universal Modem Driver (Unimodem) component provides the infrastructure necessary for applications to communicate with a modem. Communication with the modem can take place using the Telephony API (TAPI), used by such applications as the Remote Access Service (RAS), HyperTerminal, Phone Dialer, or through a direct interface with the communication port.
