Method for dividing a discreet radio channel in time, giving more available "communication paths" on the same channel.
Since traffic on the discreet channel is divided in time more calls can be made simultaneously. This results in more efficient utilization of the discreet channel and increases the capacity by making more "communication paths" available.
By dedicating the time slots for different uses calls and data transmission can also occur simultaneously. The split in time also enables full duplex calls, i.e. telephone calls. This is made possible by using everyother time slot for transmission and receiving.
