Bit Error Rate. The probability of error per bit in a digital communications system.

Abbreviation for it rror ate. The number of erroneous bits divided by the total number of bits transmitted, received, or processed over some stipulated period. Note 1: Examples of bit error ratio are (a) transmission BER, i.e., the number of erroneous bits received divided by the total number of bits transmitted; and (b) information BER, i.e., the number of erroneous decoded (corrected) bits divided by the total number of decoded (corrected) bits. Note 2: The BER is usually expressed as a coefficient and a power of 10; for example, 2.5 erroneous bits out of 100,000 bits transmitted would be 2.5 out of 105 or 2.5 10-5.

Bit error rate. The ratio of received bits that are in error relative to the total number of bits received, used as a measure of noise induced distortion in a digital bit stream. BER is expressed as a power of 10. For example, a 1 bit error in 1 million bits is a BER of 10–6.

Bit Error Rate. Bit Error Rate, the absolute number of errors which may be present, often experssed as xxE-y, where x is a floating point value and y is an exponent.

In telecommunication transmission, the bit error rate (BER) is the percentage of bits that have errors relative to the total number of bits received in a transmission, usually expressed as ten to a negative power.

Short for Bit Error Rate, used for measuring the quality of a connection and as a reference for performance specifications such as the receive sensitivity where the receiver sensitivity is quoted as dBm @BER 10E-5 ie 1 bit wrong out of 100,000. This is considered to be the highest error rate than can be recovered from by higher level protocols.

Bit Error Rate. Ratio of received bits that contain errors.

The ratio of received bits that are in error. Diagnostic cable-checking tools sense BER by transmitting a stream of data on one end of a cable and reading the output from the other end.

Bit Error Rate. Numerically equal to the number of erroneous bits divided by the total number of bits received through an RF communication channel. The bit error rate always increases with lower channel signal-to-noise ratio.

Bit error ratio. A measure of transmission quality, expressed as a ratio. The BER indicates how many bits are errored (incorrectly received) in a given bit stream. Generally notated as a negative exponent. For example, 1 x 10E -7 indicates one out of ten million bits (1 of 10, 000,000) are in error. Although a ratio, it is commonly referred to as “bit error rate."

Bit Error Rate. A way to measure data transmission integrity. The bit error rate (BER) is a ratio of bad bits to total bits.

Bit Error Rate - In a digital transmission, BER is the percentage of bits with errors divided by the total number of bits that have been transmitted, received or processed over a given time period. The rate is typically expressed as 10 to the negative power. For example, four erroneous bits out of 100,000 bits transmitted would be expressed as 4 x 10 -5, or the expression 3 x 10 -6 would indicate that three bits were in error out of 1,000,000 transmitted. BER is the digital equivalent to signal-to-noise ratio in an analog system.

Bit Error Rate. Bit Error Rate is the ratio representing the number of bits with errors in relation to the total number of bits that have been transmitted. The cheif impairment measurement for channels that are digital are composed of the Bit Error rate and the average numebr of seconds that are error-free.

Bit Error Rate. The ratio of bad bits to good bits - a way to measure data integrity.

Bit Error Rate. Numerically equal to the number of errored bits divided by the total number of bits. Care should be taken when reporting or interpreting "bit error rate" in systems that use encapsulated data or otherwise add overhead to the payload bits. It is normally not meaningful in the CDMA context because whole frames are erased, or not, according to the result of the frame quality check. See Frame Error Rate and Message Error Rate.

Bit Error Rate. The ratio of received bits that are in error, relative to a specific amount of bits received; usually expressed as a number referenced to a power of 10.

Bit Error Rate. An overall measure of the quality of a received digital bit stream. It is the ratio of the number of information bits that are received in error to the total number of bits received, averaged over a period of time.

bit error rate. In a digital system, corruption of the digital information is known as bit error. When the BER reaches a certain level, reception of the digital transmission will fail completely.

Bit Error Rate. The quality of a digital signal measured by the proportion of errors.

The percentage of bits in a transmitted signal that are in error, relative to the total number of bits received. BER is generally expressed as ten to the power of a negative number. For example, a BER of 10 to the -9, means that one bit was in error, out of 1,000,000,000 bits transmitted.

(Bit Error Rate) Performance is a fractional statistical measurement in bit errors per bit relative to Eb/No. Graphically presented with BER on the Y-axis with a log scale and Eb/No on the X-axis in dB. Random errors from gausian white noise can create a maximum BER of 0.5.

Bit Error Rate. Denotes the quality of a received demodulated digital signal. The lower the rate, the better the signal. Example: a BER of 10 -4 means one error in every 10,000 bits.

(Bit Error Rate): The fraction of bits transmitted that are received incorrectly. The bit error rate of a system can be estimated as follows: Where N0 = Noise power spectral density (A2/Hz).
