Multiplexing

Definition - What does Multiplexing mean?

Multiplexing is a popular networking technique that integrates multiple analog and digital signals into a signal transmitted over a shared medium. Multiplexers and de-multiplexers are used to convert multiple signals into one signal.

This term is also known as muxing.

Techopedia explains Multiplexing

Phone calls are a good example of multiplexing in telecommunications. That is, more than one phone call is transmitted over a single medium.

Multiplexing techniques include time-division multiplexing (TDM) and frequency-division multiplexing (FDM).
