Synchronous Optical Network (SONET definition

Synchronous Optical Network (SONET means the optical interface standard that allows inter-networking of transmission products from multiple vendors. The base rate is 51.84 Mbps (“OC 1/STS 1”) and higher rates are direct multiples of the base rate, up to 13.22 Gbps.
Synchronous Optical Network (SONET means a network providing a means to manage, multiplex and access various forms of digital traffic using a synchronous transmission format on fibre optics; the format is the North America version of SDH and also uses the Synchronous Transport Module (STM); however, it uses the Synchronous Transport Signal (STS) as the basic transport module with a first level rate of 51.81 Mbit/s; the SONET standards are being integrated into those of SDH;
Synchronous Optical Network (SONET means an optical interface standard that allows different digital signals to be transported using a base transmission rate of 51.84 Mbps per second (OC-1 (Optical Carrier)/STS-1(Synchronous Transport Signal)). Higher rates are direct multiples of the base OC-1 rate.
