    • Time Division Multiplexing (TDM)
    • Code Division Multiplexing (CDM)
  4. Which types of of Multiplexing is used widely?

  5. Which form of FDM is used for optical fiber?
  6. What is CDM used for?
    is a mathematical approach used in cell phone mechanisms
  7. What is Hierarchical FDM?
    flexibility in FDM arises from the ability of hardware to shift frequencies
