Modeling of Transmission Functions and Crosstalk in Metallic Cables for Implementation of MIMO Concept
MetadataShow full item record
The new promising wireless networks based on multi-carrier modulations (MCM) and multiple-input multiple-output concept (MIMO) will soon offer high-speed digital connections. Their access points are mostly connected by fixed metallic lines to core data and telecommunication networks. That is why it will also be necessary to increase the transmission speed and overall performance of these fixed access networks adequately in order to meet the expected requirements of wireless connections. It would be possible to use VDSL2 digital subscriber lines and implement MIMO concept into the existing metallic networks for this purpose, but before that it will be necessary to solve several problems first. The transmission capacity of present VDSL2 digital lines is limited mainly by crosstalk occurring in metallic cables. This paper describes a new method for modeling of transmission functions and crosstalk in multi-pair and multi-quad metallic cables including its mathematical implementation, and it also gives an example of results obtained so far. The presented model is based on statistical evaluations of measured values, generation of pseudo-random components of frequency response and subsequent filtration process.
