I work at a very large telecommunications company and do tech support on fiber optic equipment. Hearing people pronounce SONET wrong is like fingernails on the chalkbboard. The people working in the industry dont say "so-net". Why is it that IP network peeps cant say it the way the rest of us working stiffs have beeb sayin it, for me the past 10 years that ive been doing tech support in this stuff, the 48 years that my work husand has been pronouncing it, "son-et" (adding an s to saying "on") including peeps in international. Pronounce it the way the industry pronounces it so that when newbies come in, they dont get made fun of...
Unsolved It drives me crazy to hear this...
Please let us know what episodes you're referring. With 5 different hosts combinations; I'm sure that some of us are mispronouncing it due to accents (like mine is fairly southern). I usually do pronounce in the way you specified but I cannot be so sure. I will bring it the attention of the team but it helps if I can point out to the team my particular mispronunciation.
IP network peeps, like myself have heard it pronounced in many different ways since it stands for Synchronous Optical-Network. We may emphasize SO-NETwork since it logically makes sense.

Oh it was in one of the network+ episodes, probably the wan one...
Im going through the subnetting ones now, and i have to say... Nice explanations... Ive been through skillsoft and ucertify, and neither explained CIDR and VLSM the way you guys did in these videos. Before, i kinda thought they were two different acronyms/names for the same thing, which i see that happen a lot in the phone factory... Lol... And you guys 'splain things in a normal "OTJ-day-to-day-at-work-lingo" Which i appreciate. And not playing with blocks and vacuum hoses treating me like a child like M. M.
Nice format, i like the way the jokes are thrown in which really helps! (despite that one mispronounciation... Lol)
