<p>High-level technical information on Sonet (synchronous optical network) B-ISDN (broadband integrated services digital network) protocols, and interface structures is provided. Since the B-ISDN protocol standards to be used in the Broadband Reference Model are currently being discussed in the CCITT, most of the standards are not yet available. Therefore, some of the protocols described here are not based on agreements reached in national and international standards bodies. The discussion covers B-ISDN architecture and the ISO model. Sonet protocols and architecture, B-ISDN configuration, and the ATM (asynchronous transfer model) architecture.</p>
