REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adaptive Spectrum and Signal Alignment, Inc. (ASSIA®) Extreme high frequency sub-millimeter waves can increase single-line data rates to terabits/second at 100 meter lengths on ordinary twisted pair phone wire.  Speeds of 100 Gigabits/second can be achieved at distances over 300 meters, and speeds of 10 Gigabits/second can be achieved at distances over 500 meters. Dr. John Cioffi, Chairman and CEO of ASSIA and Emeritus Professor at Stanford explains, “Fiber-like speeds of 10 – 1000’s of gigabits/second (Gbps) are possible by using the previously unexploited waveguide modes of current copper infrastructure. Waveguide-mode use is similar to use of millimeter-wave transmissions in advanced wireless and 5G.  Waveguides can enable use of frequencies above 100 GHz for extraordinary speeds.”  ASSIA develops management and optimization software for broadband and Wi-Fi networks. Cioffi’s keynote at the Paris G.fast Summit conference on May 10, 2017 titled “Terabit DSL,” will introduce the new method.  During the keynote, Dr. Cioffi will explain how 5G wireless often runs at 28 GHz and 39 GHz, while commercial microwave gear can run at 70 GHz and 90 GHz.  Wireless above 300 GHz (sub-millimeter wave) is being actively researched.  Early designs suggest link latency of 50-100 μs is readily achievable, which would easily allow even the most stringent 5G latency specifications of 1ms or less to be achieved with these Terabit DSLs. Today’s fastest DSL (G.fast) uses only 200 MHz, while wireless uses 25 times as much spectrum. “The challenge was to develop practical ways to use higher frequencies over wires.  Working with my ASSIA colleagues Dr. Chan Soo Hwang, Dr. Ken Kerpez, and Dr. Ioannis Kanellakopoulos, we found a solution.” Cioffi adds, “I don’t expect anyone to need terabits/s (Tbps) to their home anytime soon. Terabits/s will be most valuable to the data centers controlled by phone companies as well as to internet companies such as Google and Microsoft.  While Tbps demand may be a few years into the future, 10-100 Gbps speeds are important to networks today and will be a big market.  Rapid advances in the Internet of Things (IoT), including autonomous vehicles, means the number of connected devices requiring high-speed ubiquitous connectivity will increase dramatically in the next decade.  We believe that Terabit DSL will play a critical role in serving the needs of that ecosystem with ultra-high-throughput and ultra-low-latency connectivity.” Further driving the demand for bandwidth, “Hundreds of thousands of 5G small cells and DOCSIS 3.1 cable nodes will require 5-20 gigabit backhaul.  Most 5G cells will connect to a Cloud RAN controller that can use 100 gigabits/s to support dozens of cells.” “AT&T and other telcos around the world are also deploying G.fast to apartments. G.fast speeds of 300 megabits to a gigabit can be supplied to every apartment.  This differs from cable, which has shared connections that require multi-gigabit backhaul.” “Fiber is and always will be expensive to deploy. There are a billion phone lines around the world which will now be able to deliver fiber-like speeds over existing copper infrastructure.  Using the existing wires in place can dramatically reduce the cost of 5G networks.” “There are a few years of work ahead in the industry to refine the system. LTE and now 5G wireless have proven major advances can evolve from concept to deployment in five to seven years. Data centers at Google and Facebook can leverage such new technologies in only a few years.” Dr. Cioffi’s G.fast Summit presentation may be found here: http://www.assia-inc.com/terabit-dsl/.

Are Power Line Communications (PLC) a good candidate for Smart Grid applications? The objective of this paper is to address this important question. To do so, we provide an overview of what PLC can deliver today by surveying its history and describing the most recent technological advances in the area. We then address Smart Grid applications as instances of sensor networking and network control problems and discuss the main conclusions one can draw from the literature on these subjects. The application scenario of PLC within the Smart Grid is then analyzed in detail. Because a necessary ingredient of network planning is modeling, we also discuss two aspects of engineering modeling that relate to our question. The first aspect is modeling the PLC channel through fading models. The second aspect we review is the Smart Grid control and traffic modeling problem which allows us to achieve a better understanding of the communications requirements. Finally, this paper reports recent studies on the electrical and topological properties of a sample power distribution network. Power grid topological studies are very important for PLC networking as the power grid is not only the information source but also the information delivery systema unique feature when PLC is used for the Smart Grid. © 2011 IEEE.

We report here that channel power gain and Root-Mean-Square Delay Spread (RMS-DS) in Low/Medium Voltage power line channels are negatively correlated lognormal random variables. Further analysis of other wireline channels allows us to report a strong similarity between some properties observed in power line channels and the ones observed in other wireline channels, e.g. coaxial cables and phone lines. For example, it is here reported that channel power gain and logarithm of the RMS-DS in DSL links are linearly correlated random variables. Exploiting these results, we here propose a statistical wireline channel model where tap amplitudes and delays are generated in order to reflect these physical properties. Although wireline channels are considered deterministic as their impulse response can be readily calculated once the link topology is known, a statistical wireline channel model is useful because the variability of link topologies and wiring practices give rise to a stochastic aspect of wireline communications that has not been well characterized in the literature. Finally, we also point out that alternative channel models that normalize impulse responses to a common (often unitary) power gain may be misleading when assessing the performance of equalization schemes since this normalization artificially removes the correlation between channel power gain and RMS-DS and, thus, Inter-Symbol Interference (ISI). © 2011 IEEE.

Base station cooperation can exploit knowledge of the users' channel state information (CSI) at the transmitters to manage co-channel interference. Users have to feedback CSI of the desired and interfering channels using finite-bandwidth backhaul links. Existing codebook designs for single-cell limited feedback can be used for multicell cooperation by partitioning the available feedback resources between the multiple channels. In this paper, a new feedback-bit allocation strategy is proposed, as a function of the delays in the communication links and received signal strengths in the downlink. Channel temporal correlation is modeled as a function of delay using the Gauss-Markov model. Closed-form expressions for bit partitions are derived to allocate more bits to quantize the stronger channels with smaller delays and fewer bits to weaker channels with larger delays, assuming random vector quantization. Cellular network simulations are used to show that the algorithm presented in the paper yields higher sum-rates than the equal-bit allocation technique. © 2011 IEEE.


Time division duplex transmission over copper physical channels is managed. In one example, upstream time slots for upstream transmission in a first physical channel are scheduled. Downstream time slots for downstream transmission in a second physical channel are scheduled. Transmission in the upstream time slots is substantially not simultaneous with transmission in the downstream time slots.

BT denies the performance of its broadband networks, including its superfast fibre ones, will be affected as a result of it discontinuing the use of some technology following a patent dispute. The dispute with US company ASSIA goes back to 2011, when ASSIA claimed that BT had infringed three of its broadband performance patents, which BT had denied. ASSIA wanted BT to license the technology in all three cases, and also threatened BT with a damages claim if it didn't come to an arrangement. A BT spokesperson said: "BT has been defending a claim brought by ASSIA since November 2011. They had asserted three patents against BT but during the proceedings, they had to narrow their allegations and withdraw one of these patents entirely." BT added: "In January 2014, the High Court found BT was infringing on only a minor part of one patent, and the Court of Appeal, whilst invalidating the majority of the claims of ASSIA's other patent, ruled that BT's network infringes what remains of the other patent. "Although BT was disappointed with the ruling, we have made minor changes to our programming which means these two decisions have no material effect on the operation or performance of our networks." If BT had not made these changes from last Friday morning - which focused on the area of dynamic line management - it was threatened with a damages claim by the court of £250,000 per week. ASSIA may still come after BT for past use of the patents in dispute though. International law firm Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co is advising ASSIA on the "ongoing dispute". Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co IP partner David Barron said: "This latest judgment from the Court of Appeal further vindicates ASSIA's determination to seek proper recompense for BT's use of ASSIA's cutting-edge DSL technology." ASSIA said it will "now proceed with its claim for damages, which it believes will amount to many millions of pounds". It added: "BT has been refused permission to appeal, but has yet to indicate whether it will seek permission directly from the Supreme Court." BT broadband customers will no doubt also be keeping a close eye on whether their broadband service suffers or not as a result of BT's network modifications. ASSIA says other broadband providers already license its software.
