In this tutorial, you will learn about Multiplexing and TDM.
What do you mean by Multiplexing?
Multiplexing provides a set of techniques that allow handling of multiple signals. It implements networking hardware and software components that combined many signals to use signals link. Multiplexing offers the facility to specify satellite network. There are various types of multiplexing used with the satellite network. It is used when two devices are connected by a point to point a link to specify network sharing. Multiplexing specifies data rate and cost-effective transmission where multiplexing can be specified by synchronous and asynchronous transmission in the form of TDM and FDM.
Importance of Multiplexing:
Multiplexing offers a facility to specify satellite network. There are various types of multiplexing used with the satellite network.
FDM: Frequency division multiplexing.
TDM: Time division multiplexing.
FDM: It stands for Frequency division multiplexing. TV cable is an example of FDM. FDM use bandwidth to specify transmission where signals cannot overlap.
TDM: It stands for Time division multiplexing. In this multiplexing signal pass or synchronize automatically. So, It is also called synchronous time division multiplexing. TDM allows to receive signals from multiple channels and also output all channels at once.
