The fraction of bits transmitted that are received incorrectly.

A measure of transmission accuracy expressed as the ratio of bit errors received to bits sent. A common voice and data BER benchmark is 10-9 or one error in a billion.

The rate of message bits that are in error (an error rate of 106 means that there will be on average one error for every million bits).

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

BER is the ratio of the number of bits received with errors to the total number of bits transmitted. BER and the average number of error-free seconds are the principal impairment measurements for digital channels.

The percentage of received bits on a digital link that are in error relative to the number of bits received, usually expressed to a power of I 0

The fraction of bits that are in error. BER = e/N where e is the number of errors and N is the total number of bits (corect bits plus erroneous bits).

A measure of the quality of a digital transmission facility.

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.

The number of errors in a data stream usually expressed a ratio to the total number of bits in which an error occurs. For example 1 in 10.

The percentage of received bits in error compared to the total number of bits received. A bit error rate of 10-6 means that there is an average of one error per million bits. bps

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. A measure of quality of digital transmission systems. Expresses the ratio of correct bits to erroneous bits. To overcome transmission errors, many codecs include forward error correction , important for transmission of highly compressed data.

Ratio of received bits that contain errors.

The ratio of defective bits over total bits on diskĀ¹s surface

The fraction of a sequence of message bits that are in error. It denotes the quality of a received demodulated digital signal. The lower the rate, the better the signal e.g. a BER of 10-4 means one error in every 10,000 bits.

A quality measurement of how many bits are lost or corrupted in transmission.

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.

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.

(BER). The bit error rate (BER) is the number of bits received in error over a selected period of time. The bit error rate is normally expressed as a fraction.

The number of errors occuring in a system per second.Typically less than 10e-12.

The average probability of a digital recording system reproducing a bit in error. It is the ratio of the number of characters of a message incorrectly received to the number of characters of the message received

The ratio of bits received in error to bits sent.

The number of errors occurring in a system per unit of time (e.g. bits per second)

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.

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.

The fraction of a sequence of message bits that are in error. A bit error rate of 10-6 means that there is an average of one error per million bits.

The ratio of the number of bits received in error on a digital link to the total number of bits received.

The ratio of received bits that are in error relative to the total number of bits received. It is used as a measure of noise induced distortion in a digital bit stream. BER is expressed as a power of ten.

The number of bits processed before an erroneous bit is found.
