BERT error rate

Specifies the exponent n in the bit error rate 10–n. The default value is 0 (no bits are transmitted in error).

Enter a value from 3 through 7, or 0. For example, a value of 6 specifies that 1 bit out of 1,000,000 is transmitted in error.

BERT period

Specifies the length of time (in seconds) of the bit error rate test. The default value is 10.

Enter a value from 1 through 240.

Framing mode

Specifies the framing mode for the interface. The options available are:

  • esf—Extended superframe (the default).
  • sf— Superframe.

Select an option.

Loopback

Configures the interface as a loopback interface for testing purposes. The options available are:

  • local—Traffic loops from the transmitter to the receiver at the interface during tests.
  • remote—Traffic loops from the receiver to the transmitter at the interface during tests.
