What is FDM (Frequency-Division Multiplexing)?

Frequency-Division Multiplexing (FDM) is a signal transmission technology in which multiple signals can simultaneously be transmitted over the same line or channel. Frequency-division multiplexing (FDM) can be used in both wired and wireless networking for transmitting large amounts of data at high speeds. FDM is the simplest and oldest form of multiplexing in wireless networking technology.

How FDM Works?

Frequency division multiplexing involves simultaneously transmitting multiple signals on different frequencies. These different frequencies, called channels, share non-overlapping portions of the total frequency band being used.

Signals from different data sources are fed into a multiplexer that modulates each signal and transmits them at different frequencies.

These signals are then transmitted over the wire or through wireless communication and are separated at the destination into individual data signals using a demultiplexer.

Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)

Public Key Infrastructure, also known as PKI, is a set of services that support the use of public-key cryptography in a corporate or public setting. A public key infrastructure (PKI) enables key pairs to be generated, securely stored, and securely transmitted to users so that users can send encrypted transmissions and digital signatures over distrusted public networks such as the Internet.

Digital Signature

Digital Signature is an electronic signature that you can use to sign a document being transmitted by electronic means such as e-mail. Digital signatures validate the identity of the sender and ensure that the document they are attached to has not been altered by unauthorized parties during the transmission.
