Crosstalk is one of the main limiting factors in the data rates achievable by digital subscriber line (DSL) systems, and several algorithms have been proposed to mitigate this impairment. In this paper, we compare the capacity of binders under different crosstalk-mitigating techniques. When computing capacity, we also compare two different power(More)
There are many spectrum balancing algorithms to combat the deleterious impact of crosstalk interference in digital subscriber lines (DSL) networks. These algorithms aim to find a unique operating point by optimizing the power spectral densities (PSDs) of the modems. Typically, the figure of merit of this optimization is the bit rate, power consumption or(More)
The proper management of the signal to noise ratio margin is important for improving the stability of digital subscriber line (DSL) networks and increasing the customer satisfaction regarding services such as triple-play. This work presents a novel algorithm for multiuser margin optimization that benefits from the relationships between power and margin(More)
Digital subscriber lines (DSLs) technology is vastly used for high-speed data transmission. Crosstalk is one of the main problems in DSL. The research community has done extensive work on how to optimize spectrum allocation across DSL frequencies and mitigate crosstalk, a subject that has been called dynamic spectrum management (DSM). This text presents a(More)
The emerging multiuser transmission techniques for enabling higher data rates in the copper-access network relies upon accurate knowledge of the twisted-pair cables. In particular, the square-magnitude of the crosstalk channels between the transmission lines are of interest for crosstalk-mitigation techniques. Acquiring such information normally requires(More)
Digital subscriber lines (DSL) are today one of the most important means for delivering high-speed data transmission. An emerging technique for dealing with one of the technology’s most harmful problems, crosstalk, is dynamic spectrum management (DSM). DSM literature already counts with some half a dozen important solutions. These solutions can be(More)
The development and assessment of spectrum management methods for the copper access network are usually conducted under the assumption of accurate channel information. Acquiring such information implies, in practice, estimation of the crosstalk coupling functions between the twisted-pair lines in the access network. However, this estimation is not supported(More)
This paper investigates practical aspects associated to the adoption of dynamic spectrum management (DSM) in existing digital subscriber lines (DSL) access networks. A standard-compliant crosstalk estimation method is utilized in order to retrieve the crosstalk channel information needed by, e.g., a DSM level 2 system. A DSM application framework was(More)
