CIMM DEFINITION: Lapses and drops in data transmittal and receiving. In Set-Top Boxes, faults can include signal drops or any interrupted flow of signal to or from the box. Flagged faults are apparent in the data output. Un-Flagged faults must be ascertained through experience, algorithms or other methods. Faults from buffering can cause duplicative data records.
