What Is Synchronous Optical Network (SONET)
Synchronous Optical NETwork (SONET) is the North American transmission standard for transporting information over Fiber Optic Transmission Systems. SONET represents a fundamental change from asynchronous technology in the process of planning and designing fiber networks. It provides a standard, optical interface for the interconnectivity and interoperability of network transmission equipment. Essentially, SONET adds thousands of additional traffic lanes to the information highway for voice, data, video, and imaging traffic.
