Sorry - the customer didn't have it correct - it's either MCBF or MTBF - Mean cycle between failure or mean time between failure.

Hello,

Ok, I've heared of that one :-)

MTBF is the statistical mean time a component is expected to work without failing. The higher it is, the more reliable is the component.

Mathematically, it is according to this site below:

This is a generic term, which is used in almost all appliances we use (not just Ultrium tape drives).
