NAME

     umodem — USB modem support

SYNOPSIS

     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel
     configuration file:

           device umodem
           device ucom

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in
     loader.conf(5):

           umodem_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

     The umodem driver provides support for USB modems in the Communication Device Class using
     the Abstract Control Model.  These modems are basically standard serial line modems, but
     they are accessed via USB instead.  They support a regular AT command set.  The commands can
     either be multiplexed with the data stream or handled through separate pipes.  In the latter
     case the AT commands have to be given on a device separate from the data device.

     The device is accessed through the ucom(4) driver which makes it behave like a tty(4).
