Simulating Gaussian Crosstalk for DSL Testing Timothy R. Clark

The presence of crosstalk is a major detriment to the performance of Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) transceivers. It is therefore important to test performance under a wide variety of crosstalk scenarios. This thesis presents the development of a crosstalk noise generation system as a tool for DSL performance testing. Where many commercially available solutions are limited to specific testing needs, the system presented here is universal and can simulate virtually any noise scenario conceivable for DSL deployment.
Several requirements for the accurate frequency domain modeling of DSL crosstalk are presented. The time domain properties of crosstalk were also studied with particular attention paid to the amplitude distribution. The importance of a Gaussian amplitude distribution and the limiting effect of a finite-length pseudo-random crosstalk sequence on the "tail" of the Gaussian distribution were investigated. A method of forcing finite-length crosstalk sequences to have a "near-Gaussian" amplitude distribution is proposed.

Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) Deployment Nears UNH-IOL

An exciting milestone on the road to TRILL deployment occurred from August 3rd to 5th 2010 at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), as a group of companies attended the first multi-vendor TRILL plugfest. The plugfest was successful in demonstrating interoperability between TRILL devices. It was a first step towards wide deployment of TRILL and valuable knowledge for increasing TRILL interoperability was gained through the event.
