AU – Administrative Unit
An Administrative Unit is created during the process of forming the payload of an STM-1. The AU contains a pointer which identifies where in the payload the VC-4 (Virtual Container-4) data begins, thus differentiating between padding and data. The task of the AU is to provide adaptation between the Higher Order Channel Layer and the Multiplex Section Layer.
