Is there a formula describing the relationship between bit error rate, frame size, and normalised effective throughput?
to clarify, normalised effective throughput is the same as channel utilisation.
so far I have "throughput = 1/(1+2a)" where "a = tprop*R/L" (tprop=propagation time or delay,R = bit rate), however I am unsure how bit error rate fits into this - does bit error rate have much to do with bit rate.
Any help/pointers/where to get help would be appreciated. are there any other forums that I should post this on?
EDIT: Just to give some more background info: basically this is for a project(topic: analysis of optimal frame size and bit error rate relationship on lossy links), where we have to write a MATLAB GUI (graphical user interface) and the inputs are bit error range (ie max and min bit error rates) and frame size range (max and min frame/packet sizes). We have to calculate the normalised effective throughput of the link from those inputs, and make a 3d graph.(x:BER, y:FSR, Z:throughput)
@clabacchio i was talking about general parameters - L stands for number of bits in a frame.
@kellenjb we haven't been given any info on how errors are handled, so i suppose we just make an assumption. (and i deleted the other posts, sry about that)
