DCIT (Digital Compression of Increased Transmission)

Part of the Data transmission glossary:

DCIT (Digital Compression of Increased Transmission) is an approach to compressing information that compresses the entire transmission rather than just all or some part of the content. It can be applied on both wire and wireless media. It uses novel coding and modulation techniques devised at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey.

According to IEEE Spectrum , if equipment at home and the phone company's central office used DCIT, existing copper wiring could deliver 3.2 Mbps in one direction and 8 to 16 Mbps in the other with a small amount of bandwidth available for analog voice transmission.
