Enter the total number of bits received in error and the total number of bits received into the calculator to determine the bit error rate.

## Bit Error Rate Formula

The following formula can be used to calculate a bit error rate.

BER = EB / NB

- Where BER is the bit error rate
- EB is the number of bits received in error
- NB is the number of bits received in total

## Bit Error Rate Definition

A bit error rate is a measure of the quality of digital transmission of a system. It’s defined as the ratio of bits received in error divided by the total number of bits received.

## Bit Error Rate Example

How to calculate a bit error rate?

**First, determine the total number of bits.**Calculate the total number of bits received.

**Next, determine the number of errors.**Calculate the total number of bits received in error.

**Finally, calculate the bit error rate.**Calculate the bit error rate by divided the bit errors by total bits.

## FAQ
