<communications> (fdx, from telegraphy) 1. A type of duplex
communications channel which carries data in both directions at once.
On purely digital connections, full-duplex communication requires two pairs of
wires. On analog networks or in digital networks using carriers, it is achieved
by dividing the bandwidth of the line into two frequencies, one for sending, and
the other for receiving.
2. An obsolete term for remote echo.
Compare simplex, half-duplex, double-duplex.
