10 VDSL Rate and Reach
11 Bonded Service A way to increase rate and reach over single pair limitations Multiple physical pairs carrying a portion of the total bit stream. Three approaches: –G.998.1, ATM based –G.998.2, Ethernet based –G Time –division Inverse Mux VDSL will use an Ethernet approach with “muxing” at the TC layer with a new aggregation and rate matching function. May not achieve double the rates due to VDSL cross talk in the same binder group

16 VDSL2 Profiles Profiles are specified to allow transceivers to support a subset of the allowed settings and still be compliant with the recommendation. The specification of multiple profiles allows vendors to limit implementation complexity and develop implementations that target specific service requirements. The eight VDSL2 profiles (G.993.2) : 8a, 8b, 8c, 8d, 12a, 12b, 71a, 30a, define a set of configurations for transmit power and band plan. Service Providers are now using these terms
17 VDSL2 Some Favored Profiles Note: While Annex C is specified as for Japan, other regions are using those profiles
18 VDSL2 Spectrum Capability For exchange deployment –VDSL2 spectrally compatible with ADSL/ADSL2 (138kHz to 1.104MHz) and with ADSL2+ (138kHz to 2.208MHz) For cabinet deployment –VDSL2 spectrally compatible with cabinet-based ADSL2+ –Power control needed to ensure spectrum compatibility with exchange based services (138kHz to 2.208MHz) –Achieved by shaping the cabinet signals by a factor based on the electrical distance between the exchange and cabinet –Degree of shaping defined via MIB control (G.997.1) –Enables VDSL2 to comply with regulatory requirements –VDSL2 PSD shaping currently being investigated by various European and Asian operators
19 VDSL2 PSD Shaping PSD shaping in VDSL2 facilitates coexistence between ADSL/2/2+ from the CO with ADSL2 from the cabinet. PSD shaping functionality exists already in ADSL2+ –Compared to ADSL2+ VDSL2 has extended the parameter range –Likely to be amended to ADSL2+ as well Different level of transmit power makes disturbance in the same binder – need adjustment. One configuration example: Exchange: OLT DSLAM Node VDSL Profile 8b VDSL Profile 17a Optical ADSL2+ 20 to 25 M bps for VDSL Crosstalk from VDSL effecting ADSL: PSD management approach
20 OLR - Dual Latency (Fast and Interleaved Paths) Dual Latency refers to bearer channels that can have different latency treatments as defined by such things as interleave depth, INP settings and FEC configurations. Fast path has low latency (<1ms). –Good for voice traffic. –People perceive delay negatively during a conversation. –Losing (small amounts of) data is not critical. Most CODECs will disguise lost data by replaying the previous audio. Interleaved path has more latency (up to 10ms) but has better immunity to disturbers such as impulses. –Guaranteed to correct errors due to impulses <250μs. –Good for data and video. –Data and video are tolerant of delay (not "delay variation" that's jitter) but are not tolerant of lost data
21 On-Line Reconfiguration (OLR) Reconfiguration takes four forms: Bit Swapping (BS), Seamless Rate Adaptation (SRA). Dynamic Rate Repartitioning (DRR) and Dynamic Spectrum management (DSM) BS reallocates data and power (i.e. margin) among the allowed sub ‑ carriers without modification of the higher layer features of the physical layer. Bit Swapping reconfigures the bits and fine gain parameters without changing any other PMD or PMS ‑ TC control parameters. SRA is the ability to change data rates in real-time based on monitoring changing line conditions and adjusting such things as bit swapping, DMT symbol bit assignments and DMT bins in use without losing frame sync. DRR is used to reconfigure the data rate allocation between multiple latency paths by modifying the frame multiplexer control parameters. DRR can also include modifications to the bits and fine gain parameters, reallocating bits among the sub-carriers. DRR does not modify the total data rate, but does modify the individual latency path data rates. DSM enables transceivers to autonomously and dynamically optimize their settings for both channel and neighboring systems, reducing crosstalk significantly.
22 OLR - Seamless Rate Adaptation (SRA) SRA dynamically monitors line conditions and adjusts bit rates to take advantage of improved conditions and reduces bit rates if necessary without loss of sync. Parameters and their typical values used for SRA –Downshift margin up = 3 dB –Downshift interval up = 60 seconds –Downshift margin down = 3 dB –Downshift interval down = 60 seconds –Upshift margin up = 3 dB –Upshift interval up = 60 seconds –Upshift margin down = 3 dB –Upshift interval down = 6 seconds The effect is to increase bit rate performance
23 OLR - Dynamic Rate Repartitioning (DRR) DRR monitors the bandwidth on a connection and reallocates the bandwidth per path allowing the available bandwidth to be used more efficiently. –It achieves this by modifying the framing parameters and by using bit swapping. –The reallocation of the bandwidth is done seamlessly without disturbing the user’s applications (video stream, VoIP call, surfing the net). –The total delivered bandwidth is not changed. It will reallocate the bandwidth assuring each application gets the highest possible QOS.
24 Dynamic Spectrum Management (DSM) Static Spectrum Management (SSM) setup as part of network engineering guarantees that all of the DSL lines in binder are spectrally compatible. Since services running on the DSL lines are dynamic, static management typically wastes bandwidth. DSM takes advantage of dynamically changing conditions and improves the wasted channel capacity left by SSM. The ultimate DSM solution requires monitoring of the line conditions by a central processing unit as well as the individual modems monitoring line conditions as well. The central DSM unit monitors: –Line margin –Tx Power Levels –Bits/tone tables –Insertion loss/tone –Noise/tone –Actual PSD levels/tone –Errored seconds –Known service items such as bridge taps, loop lengths, and binder service area (so they know what other services are in the same binder)
25 Dynamic Spectrum Management (DSM) There are 4 levels of DSM coordination between multiple DSL lines –Level 0 Static Spectrum Management (SSM) –Level 1 Autonomous power allocation (Single –user) –Level 2 Coordinated power allocation (Multi – user) –Level 3 Multi-pair, multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO)
26 DSM (The Four Levels) Level 0 Level 0: The performance of one individual pair is optimized without considering the other pairs in the binder –Rate Adaptive (RA) and Margin Adaptive (MA) modes of operation. RA mode – All available power is used to maximize rate at the required margin MA mode – All available power is used to maximize margin at a fixed rate.
27 OLR – DSM (The Four Levels) Level 1 Level 1: Each pair in a binder manages power so as to avoid crosstalk with the other pairs in the binder. This will lead to an increased total capacity in the binder. –Power Adaptive (PA) or Fixed Margin (FM) and Iterative Water Filling (IWF) are modes of operation. PA – Power is minimized while maintaining a fixed rate and noise margins that are specified in a given range. IWF – Very similar to PA except IMF does not adhere to a fixed PSD, therefore ‘boosting’ is allowed. IWF can increase the power in used tones by reallocating power from unused tones.
28 OLR – DSM (The Four Levels) Level 2 Level 2: Similar to level 1; Here however, the central DSM center considers the other pairs line conditions as well. –Optimal Spectrum Management (OSM) aka Optimal Spectrum Balancing (OSB) The central DSM knows the cross-talk paths, the loop lengths, and the service requirements of each pair in the binder. All the used spectra is optimized by the central DSM by setting the PSDMASK parameters for each pair based on the DSM prediction of the complete binder performance. So for example, a short line may be told to use the higher frequencies even though the lower frequencies would have been used if only IWF was applied.
29 OLR – DSM (The Four Levels) Level 3 Level 3: The central DSM processes all of the signals from all the pairs in a binder at once. All transmitters and/or receivers must be co-located. –The central DSM will jointly process all of the signals in the binder rather than processing each line individually. –The binder is considered a whole entity aka (MIMO or vectoring). All the signals are combined into a vectored signal and processed together. With the joint processing, it is now possible to predict the induced crosstalk on the other lines. That predicted crosstalk signal can be subtracted from the actual received signal to reduce the crosstalk. –This can be implemented in a point-to-point configuration or a point-to- multipoint configuration. Point-to-point – All processing is done at the receiver. Point-to-multipoint – One CO multiple CPE all processing is done at the CO.
30 OLR – Dynamic Spectrum Management (DSM)
31 Impulse Noise Protection The basic idea with INP is to separate (in time) the data and the corresponding error correction bytes for that data. This helps ensure that if an impulse occurs at time t 0 only the data will be corrupted; the RS correction bytes allow the data to be fixed. –More memory is needed to store the data while waiting for the error correction data. –INP causes the data to be delayed.

35 Impulse Noise I mpairments VDSL is more susceptible to impulse noise events due to it’s use of a wider frequency spectrum than ADSL. Noise sources are being analyzed in several forms: –REIN (Repetitive Electrical Impulse Noise) Less than 1 ms in duration No bit errors desired INP mitigation –PEIN (Prolonged Electrical Impulse Noise) 1 to 10 ms in duration No bit errors desired INP mitigation –SHINE (Single Isolated Impulse Noise Event) Duration greater than 10 ms Due to duration of events, bit errors will typically occur No loss of sync is desired
36 Transient – Long Term Interference Noise Transient or longer term noise sources make critical impacts on DSL service performance: AM Radio Many operate, both base band frequency of station and difference signal between two strong stations, in the ADSL band, stronger at night Short Wave Radio Many short wave radio stations operate in VDSL bands from 3.2 MHz to 21.5 MHz SW Station at MHz
