Multiplexing Techniques in Wireless

Multiplexing is a term used to describe how a signal can be divided among multiple users. This spectrum sharing allows wireless operators to maximize the use of their spectrum to accommodate a large number of users over fewer channels. For digital systems, three main multiplexing techniques are being used for wide area networks: frequency division, time division, and code division. A fourth method, called orthogonal frequency division, is the most complex of all of these methods. It is commonly used in high-speed local area networks, but is starting to grow in popularity for…Read more …
