Effective transmission rate

In telecommunication, effective transmission rate is the rate at which information is processed by a transmission facility.

Note 1: The effective transmission rate is calculated as (a) the measured number of units of data, such as bits, characters, blocks, or frames, transmitted during a significant measurement time interval divided by (b) the measurement time interval.

Note 2: The effective transmission rate is usually expressed as a number of units of data per unit time, such as bits per second or characters per second[?]. Synonyms average rate of transmission, effective speed of transmission.
