Abstract:

The report summarizes study of statistical parameters that can describe the amplitude and occurrence of impulse noise, and the occurrence of errors, on a data transmission facility. It was found that the phenomena do not follow the conventional statistics of purely random events. Instead they can be described by equations of a hyperbola, of the first or higher or lower orders. There is some indication the distributions change, between those valid for short periods of under a few hours, and those for longer periods of from a few hours up to a number of months. The study included examination of the probability of error chains of extended duration which results from the hyperbolic laws. This turns out to be much more than the insignificant probability indicated by classical laws, and is in general agreement with experimental observations. Precautions are indicated for the measurement of error performance. Author
