German term or phrase: Modemanschaltung
from a Softwarepflege- und Wartungsvertrag:

"Der Kunde ermoeglicht den Zugang zum Gesamtsystem per Remote. Hierbei wird eine permanent funktionsfaehige Modemanschaltung vorausgesetzt."

I'm more concerned with the correct IT wording.

Danke.

To me, permanent funktionsfähig does not imply an uninterrupted connection (always-on); it refers to the possibility of initiating and/or receiving a data call at any time.
