IPCS Word(s) of the Day: Full Duplex

May 29, 2008 by Garrett Smith

Full Duplex = A full-duplex system allows communication in both direction, and unlike half-duplex, allows this to happen simultaneously. Land-line telephone networks are full-duplex since they allow both callers to speak and be heard at the same time.  A good analogy for a full-duplex system would be a two-lane road with one lane for each direction.
