Multiplexing is a technique used to combine multiple channels of information onto a single circuit or within a specific bandwidth range of a wireless system. At the other end of the circuit, the information is demultiplexed so that the individual channels can be extracted. Frequency division multiplexing allocates bands at specific frequencies for each multiplexed channel. See "Multiplexing and Multiplexers" for the complete discussion.
