The Bell 212A modulation scheme defined a standard method of transmitting full-duplex asynchronous serial data at 1.2 kbit/s over analogue transmission lines. The equivalent, but incompatible ITU-T standard is V.22.


The Bell 212 Dataset is a 1979-vintage modem used for communicating over telephone lines at 300 or 1200 bits per second.[1]
