Sorry for the bandwidth, I lost the address of the original poster.
I assume the industry is telecom. In the past I documented T1, T3,
SONET concepts. In this industry, it is an "errored frame", an
"errored second", a "severely errored second", a "consecutive severely
errored second", a "bursty second".
