time-division multiplexing (TDM)


time-division multiplexing (TDM): Digital multiplexing in which two or more apparently simultaneous channels are derived from a given frequency spectrum, i.e. , bit stream, by interleaving pulses representing bits from different channels. (188) Note: Successive pulses represent bits from successive channels, e.g., voice channels in a T1 system.
