FDMA

FDMA - Frequency Division Multiple Access. FDMA systems transmit one voice circuit per channel. Each conversation gets its own, unique, radio channel. The channels are relatively narrow, usually 30 KHz or less and are defined as either transmit or receive channels. A full duplex conversation requires a transmit & receive channel pair. For example, if a FDMA system had 200 channels, the system could handle 100 simultaneously full duplex conversations. (100 channels for transmitting and 100 channels for receiving)
Example:
