Understanding BER Testing in Fiber Optics

Bit Error Rate (BER) is a measure of telecommunication signal integrity based on the quantity or percentage of transmitted bits that are received incorrectly. Essentially, the more incorrect bits, the greater the impact on signal quality. Bit error rate is an effective indicator of full end-to-end performance because it encompasses the receiver and transmitter as well as the media between them.
