Definition: Rate of information transmission measured in number of symbols per second. * As a symbol may have more than two states, the baud rate may not be equal to bits per second rate e.g. the baud rate for the V32 standard is 2400 but the bit rate is 9600 (there are 4 bits per symbol); the baud rate for V34 is 3200, but its bit rate is 28800 (9 bits per symbol).
