This paper considers the multiuser power control problem in a frequency-selective interference channel. The interference channel is modeled as a noncooperative game, and the existence and uniqueness of a Nash equilibrium are established for a two-player version of the game. An iterative water-filling algorithm is proposed to efficiently reach the Nash(More)
This paper describes the “vectored” transmission technique for digital subscriber line (DSL) systems, which utilizes user coordination at the central office or optical network unit. This method exploits the colocation of the downstream transmitters and of the upstream receivers, in order to achieve far-end crosstalk (FEXT) cancellation and perform multiuser(More)
The performance of DSL systems is severely constrained by crosstalk due to the electromagnetic coupling among the multiple twisted pairs making up a phone cable. In order to reduce performance loss arising from crosstalk, DSL systems are currently designed under the assumption of worst-case crosstalk scenarios leading to overly conservative DSL deployments.(More)
Crosstalk is the major source of performance degradation in VDSL. Several crosstalk cancelers have been proposed to address this. Unfortunately, they suffer from error propagation, high complexity, and long latency. This paper presents a simple, linear zero-forcing (ZF) crosstalk canceler. This design has a low complexity and no latency and does not suffer(More)
Crosstalk is the major source of performance degradation in next generation DSL systems such as VDSL. In downstream communications, transmitting modems are co-located at the central office. This allows crosstalk precompensation to be employed. In crosstalk precompensation, the transmitted signal is pre-distorted such that the pre-distortion destructively(More)
Very high bit-rate digital subscriber line (VDSL) is the latest generation in the ongoing evolution of DSL standards. VDSL aims at bringing truly broadband access, greater than 52 Mbps in the downstream, to the mass consumer market. This is achieved by transmitting in frequencies up to 12 MHz. Operating at such high frequencies gives rise to crosstalk(More)
An overview of alien crosstalk cancellation for DSL systems with multiple pairs is here presented. It is shown that when a common crosstalk source affects the receivers of multiple pairs, the noise exhibits a certain correlation among the pairs. In a DMT system, the frequency-domain noise samples are most strongly correlated between pairs when they(More)
