Re: PAM-5, what are your BERs ?
With regards to the BER problem, are we open to the possible use of forward error
correction to correct for bit errors in the transmission stream. Currently in
T1X1.5, there is a submission for inband FEC based on a BCH-3 code that turns a
1x10**-7 BER into a corrected BER of 1x10**-17. Prehaps a BCH-1 code could be used?
Using FEC would introduce the need for some additional bits within the frame format
and it would probably introduce some latency, but it would introduce some coding
