Definition: multiplexing

Transmitting several signals over a single communications line or computer channel. The two common techniques are frequency division multiplexing (see FDM), which separates signals by modulating the data onto different carrier frequencies, and time division multiplexing (see TDM), which separates signals by interleaving bits one after the other. See modulation, carrier, subcarrier, FDMA and TDMA.
