Standard developed by UsRobotics and introduced Feb 27, 2001. The V.92 standard offers new features such as modem on hold, which can suspend a user's data call and answer an inbound call. Quick connect, another feature, shortens the modem's connection time by remembering the line conditions to the dial-up server. V.PCM-Upstream, another feature, allows faster upstream communication with upload speeds reaching 48,000 bits per second (V.90 upstream speeds were limited to 31,200 bps).
