data service adapter (DSA)

A DataServiceAdapter (DSA) is an adapter for data-capable mobile phones that operate according to the GSM standard

. Constructively, the DSA adapter corresponds to the PCMCIA adapter and is suitable for use in data terminal equipment, e.g. for personal computers or laptops, and as an external pocket adapter. In addition to the connection of computers, the DSA adapters often also provide connection options for fax machines. For transmission security and compression, Microcom Networking Protocols (MNP) such as the MNP5 are usually available. The available transmission speeds are 2,400, 4,800, 7,200 and 9,600 bit/s.
