It's the device made by comsec. They call it "VP1" in the specs.
So we are talking about the specs for "GSP8191", i suppose.

We would like to use a standard-144-modem.
These modems use V32bis and are therefore synchron "on the line".
However VP1 has a direct "synchron" connection to the modem-chip.
In our case this synchronous data is converted to asynchron.
While this does not change the baud-rate (we can still use gsm-full-rate),
it changes several aspects for frame-synchronisation.
These differences to aquire and maintain sync were what i meant.
