This paper reports upon the results of tests of the transmission of data over single- and multiple-hop companded delta modulation (DM) systems. The DM coder-decoder (CODEC) was optimized for voice transmission. Modem bit error rate (BER) achievable over the range of 1200-9600 bits/s is presented. A comparison with the performance of pulse code modulation (PCM) is included. The comparison indicates that the two systems are comparable for error-free digital lines but favors the DM system for lines with errors.
