USRobotics Launches Compact, Affordable USB Soft Modem


USRobotics’ New 56K USB Soft Modem

Chicago (August 29, 2012) – Leading global modem manufacturer USRobotics, a Platinum Equity company, today announced the new USRobotics 56K USB Softmodem (USR5639), a compact USB modem. Featuring plug and play installation and a projected retail price point under $30, this smaller modem is designed to fit into the most confined spaces, making it ideal for mobile users and point-of-sale solutions. The USRobotics USB Softmodem is approved for applications in the US, Canada, and Europe and is qualified for additional worldwide regulatory approvals.

Functionality and reliability for our customers in a more practical size

Bruce Swail, CEO at USRobotics, says the USRobotics USB Softmodem is ideal for customers with point-of-sale or machine-to-machine systems that require a compact dial-up fax modem. “Ultimately, the goal of the USB Softmodem is to deliver functionality and reliability for our customers in a more practical size.” He continued, “The Softmodem is bus-powered; there’s no need for an outside power source, so we are able to offer a fax modem that is both compact and cost effective, making it easy to be incorporated into a wide range of data transfer solutions throughout North America and Europe.”

The size and cost of the USRobotics Softmodem makes it an indispensable tool for both large and small-scale businesses. Small and light, with plug-and-play operation, the Softmodem is for use on both laptop and desktop and is compatible with V.92 and lower rates making ideal for compact point-of-sale solutions. The USR USB Softmodem’s Plug and Play installation is optimal for businesses with a high volume of varied computer systems. The Softmodem can send and receive faxes through the computer while concurrently running multiple applications, allows preferred modem default settings to be permanently stored, and includes ring detection and qualification which eliminates unintended wake-on-ring events. The USR Softmodem supports most dial up standards while Quick Connect (V.92) reduces the time it takes to establish a standard dial-up Internet connection to send attachments up to 50% faster.

Because USRobotics is committed to keeping its technology products safe for the environment, the new USB Softmodem has also fully achieved RoHS compliance.


The new USRobotics 56K USB Softmodem is currently available direct from and can be purchased through USRobotics’s authorized distributors such as Ingram Micro, Tech Data, D&H, and Synnex and reseller partners including Amazon, CDW, Provantage, and Tiger Direct.
