Error Rate - Definition

Error Rate is a term that describes the degree of errors encountered during data transmission over a communications or network connection. The higher the Error Rate the less reliable the connection or data transfer will be. It can also refer to a physical hardware device as well as a software application where in many cases, it may be acceptable if a certain number of errors are generated. This is often referred to as the Error Rate and the acceptable level will vary according to the device being used. For instance, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software, at present will have an error rate around five to ten percent.
