 Stable low power mode for multicarrier transceivers patent thumbnailStable low power mode for multicarrier transceivers
A stable low power mode (lpm) for multicarrier transceivers is described that at least provides transmit power savings while enabling receiver designs that can easily operate without the detrimental effects of fluctuating crosstalk. In one exemplary embodiment, the lpm achieves power savings by reducing the number of used subcarriers without actually performing a power cutback on those subcarriers, thereby allowing a receiver to measure the snr or noise levels and determine the crosstalk noise on the line regardless of a crosstalking modem being in a lpm or not..
