UMODEM(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		     UMODEM(4)

NAME
     umodem -- USB Communication Device	Class serial (CDC ACM) driver

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

	   device usb
	   device ucom
	   device umodem

     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 and serial devices that
     implement the Communication Device	Class Abstract Control Model (CDC
     ACM).  It also provides device-side CDC ACM support.  Supported 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).

HARDWARE
     Devices supported by the umodem driver include:

     +o	 3Com 5605

     +o	 Metricom Ricochet GS USB wireless modem
     +o	 Sierra	MC5720 Wireless	Modem
     +o	 Yamaha	Broadband Wireless Router RTW65b
     +o	 ELSA MicroLink	56k USB	modem
     +o	 Sony Ericsson W810i phone
     +o	 Sonim XP5300 Force

BUGS
     Only modems with multiplexed commands and data are	supported at the
     moment.
