Compandor / Compander

A combination of a compressor at one point in a communication path for reducing the volume range of signals, followed by an expander at another point for restoring the original volume range.

Usually its purpose is to improve the ratio of the signal to any interference that may enter the system at a point in the path between the compressor and the expander.
