automatic answering (AA)

Automatic Answering (AA) is the ability of a terminal, modem, computer or similar to automatically transmit an answer to the caller in response to an incoming call.

With Automatic Answering, it goes without saying that an answer can only be transmitted if the communications program can handle the call. The automatic answering of the data transmission equipment (DCE) to the data terminal equipment (DTE) is done by a program. In the case of modems, an indicator light shows the status of the handshaking between the computer and the modem.
