Since the early 1990's the SONET/SDH standard has been very successful in high speed optical communications and it has now paved the way to ultra-high bandwidth data transport. Previously the primary objective of SONET was synchronous traffic with an expected high quality of service whereas asynchronous traffic (data) was of secondary concern. The rapid increase in data traffic has demanded a data network with better QoS and higher data rates, in the range of 2.5 - 10 Gb/s, which are in closer alignment with SONET. At the same time data has been penetrating into the synchronous network, creating a demand for a more flexible and data-friendly standard. With SONET already in place with it's tremendous investment in equipment and infrastructure and personnel training-has led to the new network that combines the best of both worlds, the next generation of SONET/SDH.
