## How To Do Bit Error Rate Measurement In Networking?

The Bit Error Rate is defined as the number of bit errors per second. Bit error is mostly expressed in percentage or a ratio. While stating Bit Error Rate the probability of error is also taken into account. Generally, a packet transmission time is taken into account and all the bit errors during this time are calculated.

Factors affecting BER

• Noise
• Interference
• Distortion
• Attenuation
• Bit synchronization
