Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR OPERATING COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
A method and apparatus for operating a communication system, the communication system comprising a transmitter device connected to a plurality of wire connections, the transmitter device being operable to transmit signals onto the wire connections over a plurality of different channels, the method comprising: for each channel, measuring, for each of the other channels, an electromagnetic coupling between that channel and that other channel; for each channel, determining, using the measured electromagnetic coupling measurements for that channel, a score, the score being indicative of either how strongly that channel affects the other channels via crosstalk interference from that channel, or how susceptible that channel is to receiving crosstalk interference from the other channels; and operating the communication system in dependence upon the determined scores.
