Simple and Causal Twisted-Pair Channel Models for Systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


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 bitrates
of 1 Gbps over short copper loops. In this context, accurate
models of short twisted-pair cables operating at relatively high
frequencies are key elements. This work describes new parametric
cable models that incorporate four important characteristics:
support of frequencies up to 200 MHz, few parameters, causal
impulse responses and require relatively easy fitting procedures.
The results show that the models achieve good accuracy for
single segments, which are the expected topology for
