What is simplex?

It is the mode of communication between two devices in which flow of data is unidirectional. i.e. one can transmit and other can receive.

E.g. keyboard and monitor.

Simplex is a communications mode in which only one signal is transmitted, and it always goes in the same direction. The transmitter and the receiver operate on the same frequency. When two stations exist and they alternately (not simultaneously) send signals to each other on the same frequency, the mode is technically known as half duplex. However, most amateur radio operators refer to half duplex as simplex.
