[EFM] RE: [EFM-Copper] Copper schedule in LAX (and beyond...)

Vladimir, Patrick, all,

First of all, I would prefer a decision for line code the sooner the better.
Here are some considerations though:
I think if we are dealing with Public network only, then it is much easier
to deal with issues you brought up. After all for short public loops (i.e.
2.5 kft) VDSL and 100Base-CU both are saying that they will comply with
plans 998/997. As everybody in this committee may know that there is a dual
track std in ANSI for VDSL due for a decision in Q1/03. Mean time TDD
methods can meet the spectral compatibility and qualify to be used in public
network. The reason it was decided that we go through this process and make
a call by Q1/03 was because of the field experience, and to my knowledge
nobody has rollout VDSL 998/997 yet for field trial purposes. In order to be
consistent with the roots of VDSL, 998/997/TDD I suggest to plan for line
code vote in similar time frame as ANSI. Vlad, I don't think that equipment
vendors are going to deliver in middle of 04, rather, I think people will
start field trial by Q1/Q2-02 based on these technologies.

The only new method proposed here that is very valuable and different is 10
Base-T4 which delivers 10 Mbps over 12 kft (AWG-24) and has in fact traction
with RBOCS. Because there is a real business case behind it. I think if we
like to pursue that as a group I will certainly support to move faster, i.e.
Q4/02 for a decision, whatever Howard, Hugh, and the rest of the team can
manage to mobilize. But there we have pay a lot more attention to Spectral
Compatibility because of a lot basis services are co-existing with this
service in the bundle.( I don't think that would be an issue)

Now, if we also like to focus on in building wiring, I think there is little
data, measurement, or simulations of channels that we have access to, or
they are unavailable. High frequency FEXT and NEXT still is a problem,
although Howard in our last conference call pointed us to 10 Base-T and in
bundle characterization.

I agree. You bring up a good point. As I state in my presentation that I
will make this week, the NEXT and FEXT models currently used in the
standards are based on a large number of measurements (>90,000). Reproducing
this level of measurement in order to replace the models is a substantial
amount of work, and could slow down development of the standard.

     I think it is definitely a good idea to make a complete investigation
the loop plants, crosstalk coupling models and noise sources all over the
However, it seems to me that we couldn't complete this huge work not even to
02, but even to Nov 03 on one hand, and, on the other hand, even Nov 02
too late. It actually targets us for a decisions regarding duplexing and
modulation technique to the middle of 2003 and for equipment, accordingly,
the middle 2004! I am not sure many people are looking for this long

      My view is, we can start right now from public networks, which are
well known and specified, add all the available data on loops inside big
buildings and take this package as a primary environment to target EFM.
on, as different new environments will show a good business case, we just
them to the existing models and improve the spec.
