  Bit rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is quantified using hertz, the SI unit of frequency, or the bit per second (bit/s) unit.
The formal abbreviation for “bit per second” is “bit/s” (not “bits/s”).
“Bit rate” is sometimes used interchangeably with “baud rate”, which is correct only when each modulation transition of a data transmission system carries exactly one bit of data (something not true for modern modem modulation systems, for example).

 bits per second - a Whatis.com definition - see also: bps, bit/sec, bit per second   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
In data communications, bits per second (abbreviated bps and, by some, bit/sec) is a common measure of data speed for computer modems and transmission carriers.
One kilobit per second (abbreviated Kbps in the U.S.; kbps elsewhere) is equal to 1,000 bps.
One megabit per second (Mbps) is equal to 1,000,000 bps or 1,000 Kbps.

 Definition: bits per second   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
bits per second (b/s): A unit used to express the number of bits passing a designated point per second.
Note 1: For example, for two-condition serial transmission in a single channel in which each significant condition represents a bit, i.e., a 0 or a 1, the bit rate in bits per second and the baud have the same numerical value only if each bit occurs in a unit interval.
In this case, the data signaling rate in bits per second is 1/T, where T is the unit interval.

Although the bit is a unit of the binary number system, bits in data communications are discrete signal pulses and have historically been counted using the decimal number system.

If the modem could signal two bit values for each signal change, the bit per second rate would be twice the baud rate, or 600 bps at 300 baud.
Most modems transmit several bits per baud, so that the actual baud rate is much slower than the bit per second rate, which is the true gauge of communications speed.
The parity bit for each byte (seven data bits plus a parity bit) is set so that all bytes have either an odd number or an even number of set bits.

Baud In common usage the "baud rate" of a modem is how many bits it can send or receive per second.
Technically "baud" is the number of times per second that the carrier signal shifts value- so a 2400 bit-per-second modem actually runs at 300 baud, but it moves 4 bits per baud (4 x 300 = 1200 bits per second).
