V.92 is the latest modem technology in dial-up connection. With advanced features and better connectivity it will change the traditional dial up connection.

What are the features of V.92 modem?

This on hold feature lets you know when you have a call and you can switch to On Hold feature and answer incoming call without losing the internet connection. The amount of time you can talk depends on your Internet Service Provider's implementation of V.92.

Do I need extra software to take advantage of modem On Hold feature?

You need to have active call waiting service from your telephone service provider and also you will need Modem On Hold software. This software is necessary to monitor calls, display incoming call information, and manage the Modem On-Hold process.
