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 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)
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 work aims to overcome a common problem in many satellite images, which is the presence of undesirable atmospheric components such as clouds and shadows at the time of scene capture. The presence of such elements can hinder the identification of image objects, urban environmental monitoring, and subsequent steps of the digital image processing like(More)
This work proposes a method for the evaluation of the effectiveness of adopting dynamic spectral management (DSM) algorithms in different DSL scenarios. In the last years several DSM algorithms emerged in the literature but their comparison has been typically conducted within few scenarios and considering specific operating points. This work proposes the(More)
