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.
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).
