EXPLANATION

An octet is a byte, that is eight bits. This unit of digital information is often used in computing and telecommunications when the term byte might be ambiguous,
since historically there was no standard definition for the size of the byte. The usage of the old term octad(e) for 8 bits is no longer common today. (wiki)
