Paper Abstract

The SONET concept started with a method of synchronous multiplexing for high speed transmission. It was originally intended for transport of the most prevalent bulk transmission signal - DS3. The concept allowed most of the multiplexing and demultiplexing effort to be confined to low speed operations where CMOS could be employed for low cost and low power consumption. The concept was not allowed to remain at that level, but was expanded through the efforts of many participants in the T1X1 committee of Exchange Carriers Standards Association. SONET offers several important improvements over current transport concepts for the telecommunications network and should be viewed as the benchmark for the development and deployment of all future transmission products.
