Hello,

modem stands for modular/demodulator - it basically convert digital to analog signals and vice-versa

a  CSU/DSU device that converts digital frames into a WAN frame, normally found in T-1's

Basically, they are the same thing, but a CSU/DSU is a more concert device while a modem refers to a concept
