Abstract VDSL is the next step in an on-going evolution of DSL systems. In VDSL downstream data rates of up to 52 Mbps are supported by operating over short loop lengths and using frequencies up to 12 MHz. Unfortunately, such high frequencies result in crosstalk between pairs within a binder-group. Many crosstalk cancellation techniques have been proposed to address this. Whilst these schemes lead to impressive performance gains, their complexity grows with the square of the number of lines within a binder. In binder groups which can carry up to hundreds of lines, this complexity is outside the scope of current implementation. In this paper we investigate partial crosstalk cancellation for VDSL. The majority of the detrimental effects of crosstalk are typically limited to a small sub-set of lines and tones. Furthermore, significant crosstalk is often only seen from neighbouring pairs within the binder configuration. We present a number of schemes which exploit these properties to reduce the complexity of crosstalk cancellation. These schemes are shown to achieve the majority of the performance gains of full crosstalk cancellation with significantly reduced run-time complexity. We present both the optimal scheme for partial crosstalk cancellation which has a high initialisation complexity and a number of low-complexity schemes which achieve near-optimal performance in a wide range of scenarios.
