multiplex mode

multiplex mode

[′məl·tə‚pleks ‚mōd]
(computer science)
The utilization of differences in operating speeds between a computer and transmission lines; the multiplexor channel scans each line in sequence, and any transmitted pulse on a line is assembled in an area reserved for this line; consequently, a number of users can be handled by the computer simultaneously. Also known as multiplexor channel operation.
