## Why is statistical TDM more efficient than synchronous TDM multiplexer?

Statistical multiplexors have one very good advantage over synchronous TDMs. Although both synchronous TDM and statistical TDM can transmit data over a high-speed link, statistical TDM does not require as high speed a line as synchronous TDM does.

## What is meant by statistical multiplexing?

Statistical multiplexing is a type of communication link sharing, very similar to dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA). In statistical multiplexing, a communication channel is divided into an arbitrary number of variable bitrate digital channels or data streams.

## What are the two types of TDM?

Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) In TDM, the time frame is divided into slots. This technique is used to transmit a signal over a single communication channel, with allotting one slot for each message. Of all the types of TDM, the main ones are Synchronous and Asynchronous TDM.

## What is the difference between synchronous TDM and Asynchronous TDM?

Synchronous time division multiplexing assigns a fixed time slot to each connected device, whether the device transmits data or not. With asynchronous time division multiplexing, time slots are flexible, and assigned when connected devices have data that is ready to send.

## What is statistical TDM in networking?

Statistical time division multiplexing (STDM) is technique for transmitting several types of data at the same time across a single transmission cable or line. It is often used for managing data being transmitted via a local area network (LAN) or a wide area network (WAN).

## What is TDM explain the difference between analog TDM and digital TDM?

FDM is the multiplexing technique which is used in analog system. In FDM, Guard band is required and the spectral efficiency of FDM is low….Frequency Division Multiplexing (FDM):

S.NO TDM FDM
2. TDM works with digital signals as well as analog signals. While FDM works with only analog signals.

## What is the difference between statistical multiplexing and TDM?

Statistical multiplexing allows the bandwidth to be divided arbitrarily among a variable number of channels (while the number of channels and the channel data rate are fixed in TDM). Statistical multiplexing ensures that slots will not be wasted (whereas TDM can waste slots).

## What is asynchronous TDM?

Asynchronous TDM is called statistical division multiplexing. It is a method in which time slots are not permanent as in Synchronous TDM. Time slots are assigned to only those machines which have the information to send the data. This transmission approach transmits one character or 8 bits at a time.

## What is time slot multiplexing (TDM)?

In TDM, incoming signals are divided into equal fixed-length time slots. After multiplexing, these signals are transmitted over a shared medium and reassembled into their original format after de-multiplexing.

## How synchronous TDM de-multiplexer works?

In Synchronous TDM de-multiplexer at receiving end decomposes each frame, discards framing bits and extracts data unit in turn. This extracted data unit from frame is then passed to destination device.
