"Asynchronous" refers to a process not being synchronous.
A process not occurring at predetermined or regular intervals. The term asynchronous is commonly used to describe communications; where the pieces of a whole communication, can be transmitted intermittently, rather than in a steady stream.
For example, when downloading 1 simple file from the Internet, the idea of the data streaming as one long flow of pieces until the file is finished would be synchronous. When downloading more than one file at the same time, each file is first broken into data packets. Those data packets can be sent when ready to send, and by two different servers from two seperate locations on earth. These packets would be sent whenever they are available and not as a stready stream. This would be asynchrnous communcations.
