BISDN is both a concept and a set of services and developing standards for integrating digital transmission services in a broadband network of fiber optic and radio media. BISDN will encompass frame relay service for high-speed data that can be sent in large bursts, the Fiber Distributed-Data Interface (Fiber Distributed-Data Interface), and the Synchronous Optical Network (Synchronous Optical Network). BISDN will support transmission from 2 Mbps up to much higher, but as yet unspecified, rates.
