Explaining simplex, half duplex and full duplex for network engineers ...
There have been many times when we have needed to explain simplex, half duplex and full duplex.
So, using appropriate engineering terminology, we will explore these concepts in terms of 'taking the piss'.*
- Simplex ... someone who has the piss taken out of them and is unable to reply. Piss taking operates in a single direction broadcast mode.
- Half Duplex ... someone who will reply, only when you take the piss. Two way piss taking occurs. But only one piss take can be sent at any time from either direction.
- Full Duplex ... the ultimate in piss taking. Now both parties can simultaneously take the piss without needing to wait for the other side to stop.
Education is something that is best shared, please do give this description to a friend today.
* If you do not know what taking the piss means, ask your best friend, you may discover that they know and will try this skill out on you.
