<communications> A device that combines the data streams from many
simultaneously active inputs into one shared channel in such a way that the
streams can be separated after transmission. The concentrator's output bandwidth
must be at least as great as the total bandwidth of all simultaneously active
inputs. A concentrator is one kind of multiplexing device.
For example, a concentrator may be used to connect 24 2400 bps TTYs to a host
via a 57600 bps channel.
