Welkom op de homepage van Octet.


In computing, an octet is a grouping of eight bits.

In France, French Canada and Romania, the word octet usually means byte; a megabyte (MB) is called a megaoctet.
"Bit" and "byte" are homophones in the French language.

Octet always refers to an entity having exactly eight bits. As such, it is often used where the term byte might be ambiguous.
For that reason, computer networking standards almost exclusively use octet.
It is prominently used in Request for Comments (RFCs) published by the Internet Engineering Task Force.
The earliest example is RFC 635 from 1974.

Octet is actief in automatisering van microcontroller tot mainframe.
