Short for Time Division Multiplexing,
a type of multiplexing
that combines data streams by assigning each stream a different time slot in a set. TDM repeatedly transmits a fixed sequence of time slots over a single transmission channel. Within T-Carrier systems, such as T-1
, TDM combines Pulse Code Modulated (PCM)
streams created for each conversation or data stream.
