synchronous system
A system in which events, such as signals, occur in synchronism. Note 1: An example of a synchronous system is one in which a transmitter and receiver operate with a fixed time relationship. Note 2: A second example is SONET, which may accommodate payload signals in channels that are clocked at submultiples of the carrier clocking rate. [T1.X1]
