Meaning of BAUD RATE in English

BAUD RATE

The symbol frequency being used to transmit data over a communications line or a MIDI cable. Baud rate is often used interchangeably with bps (bits per second), although incorrectly. For example, both CCITT V.22bis (2400 bps) and CCITT V.22 (1200 bps) transmit data at 600 baud, but V.22bis modems use 4 bits per symbol while V.22 modems use 2 bits per symbol.
