I would say it means +6vDC. (Would be -6vDC if the line was below.)
The other thing to be concerned with is the (milli)amperage -- how
much the modem draws. Your replacement power supply can be able to
supply more current than the device (modem) demands -- IOW if the
modem uses 50 mA you can use a power supply of 50 mA or more (so a
75mA power supply would be OK but a 40 mA one would not).
