Overview

It's often practical to combine a set of low-bit-rate streams, each with a fixed and pre-defined bit rate, into a single high-speed bit stream that can be transmitted over a single channel. This technique is called time division multiplexing (TDM) and has many applications, including wireline telephone systems and some cellular telephone systems. The main reason to use TDM is to take advantage of existing transmission lines. It would be very expensive if each low-bit-rate stream were assigned a costly physical channel (say, an entire fiber optic line) that extended over a long distance.
