Crosstalk Mitigation for LTE-over-Copper in Downlink Direction

Research output: Contribution to journalLetter


Radio-over-copper is a niche idea that has potential to become a cornerstone in the deployment of dense 5G networks. We address one of the remaining hurdles and present an architecture for transparent crosstalk mitigation in LTE-over-copper systems. By taking advantage of reference symbols present in the downlink LTE signals we propose two methods for estimating the copper channel. System performance is evaluated using channel measurements and error vector magnitude calculations with promising results.
