byte interleaving - Computer Definition
The transmission of multiple independent data streams over a single circuit where one byte from each input stream is taken at one time and framed in a time-division sequence. In a typical voice application, a T1 transmission system, for example, supports a periodic frame of 24 information bytes, one from each channel, interleaved through a time division multiplexer (TDM). As long as the same 24 conversations remain active, byte samples of each conversation are interleaved in the same order 8,000 times per second. See also byte, T1, and TDM.
