44759-9 Synchronous networks for optimum performance Today's high-speed network applications depend on the latest in high speed, synchronous transport technology for reliable operations. SONET and T1: Architectures for Digital Transport Networks gives you the big picture on SONET, the second-generation digital carrier system, placing it in the context of the widely used first-generation system, T1. This rich resource offers detailed information on the how's and why's of managing a SONET system. SONET and T1: Architectures for Digital Transport Networks explains how to structure and maintain a high-performance network, using real-life examples of systems currently in use in a variety of business, industrial, and institutional settings. In addition, this book shows how to use SONET to interface with a variety of local and international networks, and to minimize data loss when communicating with older systems.Key chapters explore: *The basics of digital carrier systems *Timing and synchronization in digital networks *Payload mapping and management *Topologies and configurations, including add-drop and cross-connect *Operations, administration, and maintenance of digital networks *Case studies of existing SONET systems Appendices provide valuable background material on the structure, function, and performance of fiber optics, and a review of ATM technology. Filled with practical and specific information, SONET and T1: Architectures for Digital Transport Networks provides a thorough introduction to the latest in digital network technology.

This book is part of a series titled Advanced Communications Technologies. This particular book also has a close "companion" in this series, titled ISDN and SS7: Architectures for Digital Signaling Networks.
When we were planning this book, our initial intent was for it to be a SONET book, with little discussion of the T1 technology. However, we decided that the book should also include T1 because many of the SONET operations are centered around T1. In addition, as we surveyed the literature on T1, we were surprised to discover that the existing books on T1 did not cover several important aspects of the subject--omissions that we have corrected in this book.
Also, we have included material on some of the original T1 channel banks. To our knowledge, this material has not appeared in any text, and the information is essential to understanding how T1 is the way it is.
In setting out to write this book, we established two goals. First, we wish to complement the overall series, and avoid undue overlapping of the subject matter of the other books. Second, we wish to explain aspects of the subject matter that have not been provided in other reference books. We found that not much tutorial literature exists on synchronization and timing, on the Building Integrated Timing Supply (BITS), on SONET configuration (crafting) operations, and some other important subjects. This information is provided in this book.
