From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  SoftModem
  
     The integration of modem controller and data pump
     algorithms into a single RAM-based DSP hardware
     architecture.  These integrated algorithms are stored on the
     computer's hard disk, from which they are downloaded into the
     DSP board's random-access memory (RAM).  This downloading, or
     "booting" process of the PC-installed software algorithms
     occurs as part of the computer's power-up initialisation
     process in less than 100 milliseconds, making it transparent
     to the user.
