Paper Abstract

A statistical model has been designed to interpret experimental burst error data in determining an optimal error management strategy for optical media. The model is based on the theory of a Non-homogeneous Poisson Point Process. The assumptions for the evaluation of defects capable of causing error bursts in a user's data stream (burst starts and burst lengths) will be discussed. With this model it is possible to determine the optimal error management strategy to achieve any desired system performance, including depth of interleaving, error correcting capability and certification fencing for excessively long error bursts.
