Definitions for "heartbeat"
Keywords:  sqe, transceiver, collision, mau, pulse
See SQE.
Also known as SQE (Signal Quality Error), a test between the transceiver/MAU and the DTE to ensure that the collision detection circuit in the transceiver/MAU is working. The heartbeat function must be disabled when a transceiver/MAU is attached to a repeater. Every time a transceiver/MAU has successfully completed a transmission, it must send the SQE to the DTE to which it is connected to confirm that the collision detect circuit is functioning properly. This continual "pulsing" is referred to as heartbeat.
In an IEEE 802.3 network a circuit (normally part of the transceiver) which generates a collision signal at the end of a transmission. This signal is used by the controller interface for self testing purposes.
