Duplex - Telecommunications

In telecommunication, duplex communication means that both ends of the communication can send and receive signal at the same time. full-duplex communication is the same thing. half-duplex is also bidirectional communication but signals can only flow in one direction at a time. Simplex communication means that communication can only flow in one direction and never flow back the other way.
