Speed Field in /etc/uucp/Systems File

This field, also known as the Class field, specifies the transfer speed of the device that is used in establishing the communication link. The UUCP speed field can contain a letter and speed, such as C1200 or D1200, to differentiate between classes of dialers. Refer to Class Field in the /etc/uucp/Devices File.

Some devices can be used at any speed, so the keyword Any can be used. This field must match the Class field in the associated Devices file entry.
