Telegraph Terminal Room

 

a room in a telegraph office where lead-ins of all the communication wire lines and cables and their safety devices are concentrated and where the main telegraph switchboard, together with the apparatus test desks, is located. Because frequency-division and time-division multiplexing of communication lines makes possible an increased number of communication channels, the telegraph terminal room is losing its importance.
