Broadband

A method of transmission that allows multiple media to be transferred over a single wire or line, at the same time, and very rapidly, at least several megabits per second. Colloquially, the term is often applied to any Internet connection other than a dial-up connection. Broadband (and Internet connections generally) have allowed global businesses to operate much more closely to real time.

The pictures on page 61 pretty much tell the story--when the TDM is running, the scope's drive turns the polar axis with sub-arcsecond precision.
The encoder samples a scope's drive rate many times each second and the TDM can issue commands to adjust the speed as often as five times each second.
Regression analyses indicated that yield components which responded to TDM accumulation [as measured by either TDM(R1) or TDM(R5)] were also the most important in yield formation.
Production of yield components significant for yield formation strongly responds to increased TDM when TDM levels are low.
Among the economic benefits this functionality will bring to service providers is the ability to replace channelized TDM interfaces to service terminating network elements, taking advantage of low cost Ethernet interfaces.
Teknovus' TDM solution has passed extensive testing by several Tier 1 carriers and will be available in the second half of 2006.
PacketTrunk-4 Plus is a key addition to our portfolio of convergence products for access and edge networks in that it enables transparent transport of legacy TDM traffic over IP/MPLS/Ethernet networks with 'synchronization interface' quality clock recovery.
824 "synchronization interface" (less than 15 ppb, 1 sec) quality clock recovery, encapsulation (IPv4, IPv6, MPLS, L2TPv3, Ethernet), jitter compensation, Layer 2/3/4 QoS support, and support for transport of structured and unstructured TDM signals over a PSN.
Alloptic's GEPON solution provides us the flexibility of Ethernet to provide high bandwidth business services while still supporting legacy services like TDM voice.
With a native ability to support traditional TDM voice over an Ethernet-based platform, Alloptic is able to provide today's worry free telephone services while seamlessly supporting next generation services like IP HDTV.
The Open Access optical network provides advanced TDM and Ethernet services and is designed for major enterprises and government entities that require flexible bandwidth to manage future growth.
