Virtual Modem PRO
Emulate Hardware Modem

Virtual Modem PRO creates virtual IP modems and maps them to virtual serial ports in your operating system. Virtual modems are virtual copies of standard hardware modems. The main thing is that instead of using conventional telephone line modems created by Virtual Modem PRO use Ethernet network, including Internet, VLAN, VPN, etc. Virtual modems plug in virtual serial ports that are complete copies of real serial ones. You can operate them in a usual way.
Thinking about integrating our functionality into your own industry-specific solution?
Eltima Port Virtualization Technology is just what you need. Thousands of successful companies worldwide have already experienced the undeniable benefits and advantages of powering their software and hardware products with our advanced technology.

Detailed information

Who can benefit from using virtual modems?

Owners of automated systems that collect data from the remote hosts using modem and telephone line, manufacturing/warehouse data acquisition systems, fiscal/data transfers in a banking system, retail management, etc. can greatly benefit from implementing Virtual Modem PRO. For example, your bank has invested a huge lump of money and connected all its branches into a Virtual Private Network by fiber optic cable. However, the data transfer system still uses legacy application and conventional telephone line.

Instead of spending yet more money for new software development, and re-educating your staff, you can purchase Virtual Modem PRO and install it within minutes. It perfectly acts as middleware between modems and Internet. As a result, you continue to use the software you got used to and enjoy all the benefits of the faster and more reliable connection.

How do virtual modems work?

Virtual Modem PRO uses virtual serial ports technology, which performs the same as a real one. This innovative technology makes possible to choose any available protocol and opens a wide range of new creative opportunities for derived applications. Virtual modem attached to a virtual serial port, as well as the real one, supports Hayes AT commands. However it uses TCP/IP protocol to establish connection to remote host. To create such connection the first virtual modem (local host) should be configured as a TCP/IP server that listens to incoming connections, while the other one (remote host) should be configured as a client to initiate the call. Every instance of the virtual modem could be configured to be a server or a client at any time. It depends on, whether you want to generate outgoing call or accept it (just as the standard modems). Moreover, you may specify the TCP port which will be used to establish the link and IP address or hostname of the server to connect to.

Create up to 255 virtual modems in your system
Virtual Modems are absolutely the same copies of real ones - other applications will never see the difference between hardware and virtual modems.
Hayes ("AT" commands) compatible
Fully emulates Fax Class 1 modems
Send faxes to any place on the Internet using virtual modems
All major software fax applications are supported (Microsoft Fax/Ventafax/SnappyFax 2000/Mighty Fax)
Standard modem S-registers are supported
Link between Virtual Modems over the TCP/IP line is much faster than real null-modem cable connection and solely depends on your processor speed. Average transfer speed is about 35-40 Kbytes/sec
Virtual link is much more reliable than common physical link
Automatic virtual ports and modems creation during system boot (prior to user login)
