Yes, these days. SunOS 5.5.1 is Solaris 2.5.1. Just subtract 3 from the SunOS version number to get the version of Solaris. Presumably the name change was some sort of marketing hype which didn't quite pay off.

Thanks for the clarification.  I was a bit worried for a moment because I download sometime for SunOS but my manager wanted it for Solaris.  Shhhwwwoooo.

Solaris2.x   contain the SunOS 5.x which is AT&T SVR4(System 5 release 4).
The old Unix OS for Sun was SunOS 4.x which is BSD .
