One in a series of eleven Memoranda detailing the Distributed Adaptive Message Block Network, a proposed digital data communications system based on a distributed network concept. It describes the multiplexing stations that connect subscribers to switching nodes (detailed in RM-3763-PR) of the proposed broadband distributed network. The description is presented in engineering detail, showing how the station can process simultaneously traffic from as many as 1024 separate users, sending a mixture of start-stop teletype signals and synchronous signals at various rates.
