According to a new study by Frost & Sullivan, modems have become the second best-selling PC peripheral device after printers. The report states that the growth in modem use is due to the increasing popularity of the Internet and the need to connect telecommuters and branch offices to central LAN sites. It seems that analogue modem technology has hit its speed limit, and consequently the market will begin to shift to higher speed digital technologies such as ISDN, cable and ADSL, the report said. Price pressure is expected to remain important and the continuing shift to combination cards offering mobile solutions and steady growth in the laptop market is expected to push sales of PCMCIA modems.
