An iterative decoding scheme for woven convolutional codes is presented. It operates in a window sliding over the received sequence. This exploits the nature of convolutional codewords as infinite sequences and reflects the concept of considering convolutional encoding and decoding as a continuous process. The decoder is analyzed in terms of decoding delay(More)
A pipeline decoder for woven convolu-tional codes (WCCs) is introduced. The decoding is performed iteratively by shifting a window over the received sequence. For the symbol–by–symbol a posteriori (s/s– APP) decoding of convolutional code segments, a win-dowed version of the BCJR algorithm is applied. This pipeline concept allows a trade–off between(More)
—The use of a hybrid copper and fiber architecture is attractive in both fixed access and mobile backhauling scenarios. This trend led the industry and academia to start developing the fourth generation broadband system, which aims at achieving bit-rates of 1 Gb/s over short copper loops. In this context, accurate models of short twisted-pair cables(More)
