bit rate (BR)

In a bit stream, the number of bits occurring per unit time, usually expressed in bits per second. Note: For nary operation, the bit rate is equal to log_{2}n times the rate (in bauds), where n is the number of significant conditions in the signal. 2. The rate of transmission of information in binary (two state) form in bits per unit time. [47CFR]
