Time Division Duplex (TDD)

TDD is used in WiFi and some 4G/LTE networks. It uses a single frequency band for both transmit and receive which it shares by assigning alternating time slots to transmit and receive operations. The information to be transmitted, whether voice, video, or computer data, is in serial binary format. Each time slot may be 1 byte long or could be a frame of multiple bytes.
