RE: Why not have both?
The 9.584640 Gbps rate comes from the payload rate of a SDH VC-4-64c
channel which has 1 column of Path and 63 columns of fixed overhead. The
OC-192c rate is slightly larger at 9.620928 since it does not use the fixed
The calculation for these numbers in available in my Montreal presentation.
The data bytes available in a SDH VC-4-64c frame are 16,640 bytes/row by 9
rows. We agree on the Baud rate at 9.953280 Gbps and the SPE rate at
