The hardware is physically located on the modem, and tied to the modem
regulators, etc.  The modem has the ultimate "off" switch.  However,
due to the BAM architecture (which is complicated), configuration uses
cooperation on both ends.

I'm pretty sure I still have the internal docs.

Are there specific things you want to know?
