The cable modem packs the Internet data in the form of 10BASE-T frames, which are fed over an Rj-45 connection to the Ethernet network interface card (NIC) in a computer. The phone connections at the cable modem are for Internet protocol (IP) telephony, which has yet to come to residences in a big way.
