Bell 208 A/B modem multi-point, multi-drop
Bell 208 A or B or D, Comparable to ITU V.27. The first standards to enable higher-speed data transmission (4800 bps) over leased lines for multipoint, multidrop networks. For example, these standards enable us connect IBM mainframes at a central office to terminals in branch office, with fewer modems.

THE MODEM POWER SUPPLY
The standalone 208A/B modem unit contains a linear type power supply. All the power supply components are contained on the modem board except for the ac step down transformer.
The maximum ac power input to the unit at a line voltage of 110 Vac is 10 watts. The maximum dc power used by the unit is 3.5 watts.
THE MODEM TRANSMITTER
The UDS 208 A/B transmitter is a 4800 bits per second synchronous quadrature modulated transmitter with a Bell 208A/B compatible data scrambler. The transmitter provides the option of a strap selectable fixed pre-equalizer to improve performance on poor quality phone lines.
THE MODEM RECEIVER
The UDS 208A/B receiver is a 4800 bit per second synchronous quadrature demodulator with a Bell compatible 208A/B descrambler. The receiver front-end contains an improved adaptive equalizer that provides for dynamic telephone line equalization.
