Reference Entry
An encyclopedia entry for "Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing" (OFDM) is presented. It is an FDM modulation technique for transmitting large digital data over a radio wave. It works by splitting the radio signal into multiple smaller sub-signals that are transmitted simultaneously at different frequencies.
