Difference between bit rate and baud rate. 

The differences between bit rate and baud rate:

Bit rate is measured as number of data bits transmitted / second in communication channel.

Baud rate is measured as number of times a signal state is changed in a communication channel.

One change of state can transmit one bit or less than one bit which depends on modulation technique used. The bit and baud rate have the connection:

bps = baud / second x the number of bits / per baud
