Bit error rate (BER)

Bit error rate (BER),

Definition of Bit error rate (BER):

  1. The rate at which errors are found in the transmission of digital data

  2. Media quality transmission error rate, such as copper cable, coaxial cable, or fiber optic cable. The relationship between received error bits and the total number of transmitted bits is used as a measure of transmission quality. The BER is usually expressed as a negative power of ten - for example, the BER of a fiber optic cable is 1010, or worse per ten billion (10,000,000,000) bits. Yes - there is usually an error in the transmission rate every week.
