Bit Rate
  • In a bit stream, the number of bits occurring per unit time, usually expressed as bits per second. Note: For M-ary operation, the bit rate is equal to log2M times the rate (in baud), where M is the number of significant conditions in the signal. See also baud, binary digit, bits per second, data signaling rate, modulation rate, multiplex aggregate bit rate.
