# Differences between Bit Rate and Baud Rate

Computer EngineeringComputer NetworkMCA

Both Bit rate and Baud rate are used in data communication. Bit rate and Baud rate are related using below formula.

Bit Rate = Baud rate x the number of bit per baud

Following are the important differences between Pure Aloha and Slotted Aloha.

1DefinitionBit rate is transmission of number of bits per second.Baud rate is number of signal units per second.
2DefinitionIt can be defined as per second travel number of bits.It can be defined as per second number of changes.
3FocusBit rate focusses on computer efficiency.Baud rate focusses on data transmission.
4FormulaBit Rate = Baud rate x the number of bit per baudBaud Rate = Bit rate / the number of bit per baud
