20120281519Method and System for Extended Reach Copper Transceiver - Aspects of a method and system for an extended range copper transceiver are provided. Reducing the communication rate provided by multi-rate physical (PHY) layer operations in an Ethernet transceiver may extend the range of the Ethernet transceiver over twisted-pair copper cabling from a standard connection length. The Ethernet transceiver may support up to 1 Gbps or up to 10 Gbps transmission rate over copper cabling. The multi-rate PHY layer architecture in the Ethernet transceiver may support signal-processing operations, such as echo cancellation and/or equalization, which may be applied to the reduced communication rate to enable range extension. The reduced communication rate may be achieved by reducing the symbol rate provided by the multi-rate PHY layer operations. Reducing the communication rate may also enable utilizing greater insertion loss cabling for a standard connection length.11-08-2012
20120087229System and Method for Coordination of Neighboring Networks on Wireline Communication Channels - Embodiments of system and method for coordination among neighboring networks for communications over shared physical medium are provided. In one aspect, a method comprises determining, by a first domain master of a first network domain, a first number of network nodes of the first network domain that interfere with data transmission on the physical medium by at least one network node of at least one other network domain, or a second number of network nodes of the at least one other network domain that interfere with data transmission on the physical medium by at least one network node of the first network domain. The method further comprises causing, by the first domain master, one or more network nodes of the first network domain to transmit data during one of a plurality of non-overlapping time slots of a MAC cycle.04-12-2012
20130208579COMMUNICATION METHOD, APPARATUS AND SYSTEM - Various embodiments are presented of a time sharing electronic communication system, including a central unit, a crosstalk channel, and communication units such as transceivers and remote terminals. Also presented are various methods for configuring and operating the elements of such a system to enhance communication between communication units within the system. In some embodiments, locally optimal configurations are pre-computed, stored in memory, and processed into time sharing information which is communicated to communication units. The time sharing information allows the communication units to transmit at times and power levels in such a manner as to enhance the communication within the system. In some embodiments, locally optimal configurations are computed, stored, and processing, substantially dynamically, allowing substantially real time adjustment of transmission times and power levels to enhance the communication within the system.08-15-2013
