Synchronous Optical Network (SONET): Physical Layer Specifications
|Publication Date:||1 August 2002|
This document describes a technical compatibility standard specification for a digital transmission interface. For optical applications it addresses very short reach, short reach, intermediate reach, and long reach optical parameters at specific reference points (located close to the transmitter and receiver) in a manner consistent with ITU-T Recommendations G.957, G.691, and G.693. Except for OVTG, OC-1, and OC-24, all technical specifications are included in those ITU-T Recommendations. For electrical applications, T1.102-1993 (R1999) is referenced.
