RB10 Wideband HF & V/UHF Bit Error Rate Tester – 120 kbps

The RapidM RB10 Wideband Bit Error Rate Tester (BERT) is a standalone unit designed for the testing of serial and packet H/V/UHF data modem communications equipment and communications links. The RB10 BERT is used to measure the number of errors (bit or packet) in a data transmission system.

For serial testing the RB10 BERT generates a test data stream that is passed through the data transmission system. The received data stream is compared against a reference data stream to detect any errors introduced by the system under test. The RB10 BERT can detect bits in error and missed bits (also called bit slips).

For packet data and link setup testing the RB10 BERT requests the modem to establish links and send varying packets of data through the transmission system. Indications received from the modem are used to determine link probability as well as packet throughput and packet retry rate.
