There you got it. It's an Agere soft modem.

Bufff... as per this doc¹ you could try "sl-modem" package from non-free 
repo (it seems that your device -SV92U2- uses the "Scorpio" chipset) but 
prepare for the worst ;-(

OTOH, LSI (the owner company of Agere) states that the modem supports Linux, 
so you can ask them for a driver :-?
