Unicast

Transmitting a signal from one point to another, with only one user (or service) at each end. Most mobile phone technology is unicast, because each user receives a different, dedicated signal.

An alternative to unicast is broadcast. Unicast means one-to-one, while broadcast is one-to-many.

See: Broadcast
