The major difference between them is in their terminologies. For example, a SONET OC-3 signal is very much the same as a SDH STM-1 signal. The network management functions of SONET and SDH are practically identical.   The book provides an excellent, comprehensive review of SONET/SDH and is highly recommended to readers of varying backgrounds with interest in the high-speed networking for voice, data and video applications, as well as the interconnection of high-performance : Ming-Chwan Chow. Understanding SONET/SDH and ATM is a must-read for information technology, telecommunications, and communications professionals who want to improve their knowledge of this emerging technology.

  H/SONET Explained in Functional Models represents a fresh approach to the modeling of transport network technologies. This practical guide and reference text uncovers the description of SDH (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy), SONET (Synchronous Optical Network) and OTN (Optical Transport Network) transport networks and equipment using functional/atomic modeling techniques. connection-oriented networks, e.g. PDH, SDH, SONET, OTN, as well as connectionless networks, e.g. Ethernet, MPLS. The emphasis in this book is on the explanation of the functional modeling methodology and its use as a description tool. Examples are provided to help the reader in understanding . SONET/SDH defines the low level framing protocol used on these optical links. By “framing”, we mean a block of bits (or octets) which have a structure, and which utilize some technique which allows us toFile Size: KB. What is SONET/SDH SONET – Synchronous Optical NETwork (ANSI). ANSI started work on SONET in SDH – Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (ITU). The ITU began work in to achieve the same goal. SONET and SDH define a set of physical layer standards for communications over optical fiber. I will attempt to cover both SONET and SDH in this Size: KB.

UNDERSTANDING SONET/SDH AND ATM is a must-read for communication professionals who want to improve their knowledge of this emerging technology." Sponsored by: IEEE Communications Society.   Readers from different backgrounds will find everything they need to know about SONET/SDH in a very easy to understand matter. Book is full of examples and detailed explanations. At the end of each chapter there is a list of review questions, so that the reader can check him/herself with the answer key included at the end of the book/5. About this book A thorough knowledge of modern connection-oriented networks is essential to understanding the current and near-future state of networking. This book provides a complete overview of connection-oriented networks, discussing both packet-switched and circuit-switched networks, which, though seemingly different, share common networking principles.
