The Sega Saturn Modem(also known as the X-Band modem) is essentially a stripped down modem used by about a dozen games to do multiplayer over a telephone line.

Sega Saturn Modem

As opposed to the Netlink, it's is actually based on the slower RCV144ACFW-P chipset(14400 bps maximum). It also has some additional hardware to handle ISO 7816-compliant smart cards, 128 kb of flash ram, and two leds at the top to show some kind of status. The cart itself is about an inch wider and 1/4" thicker than the Netlink. It was bundled with an internet browser called "Sega Saturn Internet Vol. 1"(which looks oddly enough like a japanified Planetweb), some other disc called "Pad Nifty", and an X-Band version of the game "Virtua Fighter Remix".
