Definitions for "Sonet"
Keywords:  sdh, gbps, synchrone, optic, gigabit
Streaming live multimedia through a LAN. The software uses TV Tuner card to capture live data, and then transports it through the network using Multicast protocols. The clients can then access this stream from any node in the network.
Defines interface standards at the physical layer of the OSI seven-layer model. The standard defines a hierarchy of interface rates that allow data streams at different rates to be multiplexed.
A fiber-based system used to increase throughput and bandwidth of data transmission through a set of standard multiplexing parameters. The base level of a SONET signal is at 51.84 million bits per second, which is a DS-3 with extra overhead for maintenance and diagnostics capabilities. Each SONET level is called optical carrier (OC); hence the base level is OC-1, with increments increasing to OC-192.
