The goal of the project is to contribute to the development of the broadband access networks in the public domain. It is focused on two related areas:
  1. specification of qualitative criteria for typical services of broadband access network and optimization of this network to guarantee these services
  2. optimization methods for filter design and research of adaptive equalization algorithms used in the digital subscriber line

The first of the two tasks will be solved using analysis and modelling of the traffic character for different types of services and their combinations and by simulating the network traffic under various conditions. The analytical design methods for the broadband digital filters will be optimized and their implementation will be considered. In the field of adaptive equalizers, the project is focused on the advanced deconvolution methods, which are, due to their computational complexity, still seldom used in the industry.
