Also, a growing number of

statistical multiplexers now perform polling operations and integrate such features as switching, alternate routing and contention for host ports.

Luckily, it's possible to evaluate the critical areas of efficiency, reliability, flexibility and manageability with well-chosen questions, without having to understand the details of

statistical multiplexer technology.

Another significant use of the Omnimux 160 eight-channel

statistical multiplexer is to drive 2.

We solved this problem by using a combination of

statistical multiplexers (Tellabas 330 Dataplexers) and 331 Xplexers.

25 interface, replacing or augmenting the 205 Unibus-Interface

statistical multiplexers and increasing all trunk link rates of 19.

The overall project was complicated, however, and involved much more than just getting the

statistical multiplexers.

Across the same digital line using

statistical multiplexers, compression, and DSUs we could place about twenty-four terminals on a single 56,400-bps line, all running at 9600 bps.

On the network at the time were DSU/CSUs, time division multiplexers and

statistical multiplexers.

Stephane Guerillot, communications manager at AFP, says, "We were previously running a multiplexed network with Motorola Codex 674X series

statistical multiplexers.

In the network, 674X Series

statistical multiplexers facilitate consolidation of IBM and DEC transmissions with multiple protocols.

We investigated several options to address this problem including data compression and

statistical multiplexers, but these required significant investment in additional equipment while providing a limited set of benefits.
