In telecommunication, an error ratio is the ratio of the number of bits, elements, characters, or blocks incorrectly received to the total number of bits, elements, characters, or blocks sent during a specified time interval. The most commonly encountered ratio is the bit error ratio (BER) - also sometimes referred to as bit error rate.
