Modem means modulation and demodulation.the output of every computer is in the form of digital signal it is converted to analog form at the transmitter then the message is transmitted at the receiver end again one more modem is present it converts the analog signal to digital signal and feeds it to the computer.

example:one end is internet server(transmitter) and the other end is our computer(receiver)
