Whether the corrected error count is proper

The corrected error count is expressed in bits, and the board rate is expressed in bit/s. Therefore, the time must be converted into seconds. For example, the rate of an LWF board is 10G bit/s. If the 24-hour error correction count is 5 million, the corresponding BER is calculated as follows: (500 x 10000)/(24 x 3600 x 10 x 1000000000 = 5.79 x 10E-9. In this way, you can ascertain whether the corrected error count is proper.
