SONET COMMUNICATIONS ARCHITECTURES FOR IVHS BACKBONES

IVHS communication architectures must provide efficient transport for a wide variety of voice, data, image, and video information. Attributes that contribute to efficiency are high bandwidth, flexible circuit routing, common interfaces, and ease of maintenance and operations. These attributes are similar to those found in today's modern telecommunications networks that serve a multitude of residential and business communications needs. This paper discusses various IVHS backbone architectures that can be realized today using recent developments in telecommunications technology such as SONET rings. These backbone architectures efficiently and reliably interconnect end user applications over the wide area. Examples are developed that utilize various transmission products currently available from telecommunications equipment vendors.
