- Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) services enable an agency to link
together devices that use disparate transfer protocols (e.g. ATM, Frame Relay
or IP) into a single network. SONET is the U.S. standard for fiber optic
transmission rates from 51.84 Mbps to beyond 13.27 Gbps. It provides proactive
performance monitoring to prevent single and multiple failures, enabling
self-healing functions and robust network management.
- SONETS is mandatory in the Networx Universal contract and Optional in the Networx Enterprise contract.
