Bit Stuffing Definition/Meaning:
1.A means of providing synchronization in a data link control
protocol such as HDLC where, for example, a 0 is automatically inserted whenever
a determined number of 1s is present in a data stream at the sending end of the
link. The receiving equipment automatically deletes the extra 0s before
delivering the received message to the receiving terminal.
2. A means of
inserting and deleting bits on multiply connected high-speed digital
transmission links that are not synchronously clocked.
