What A Surprise To Wake Up To!


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys!

Well, here we go! Vectoring has been enabled on my line! I can't believe it! I've noticed that it now takes considerably longer for the CPE to synchronise with the DSLAM, but I don't mind that! laugh

adsl: ADSL driver and PHY status
Status: Showtime
Last Retrain Reason: 0
Last initialization procedure status: 0
Max: Upstream rate = 8756 Kbps, Downstream rate = 53199 Kbps
Bearer: 0, Upstream rate = 8543 Kbps, Downstream rate = 50526 Kbps
Bearer: 1, Upstream rate = 0 Kbps, Downstream rate = 0 Kbps
Vectoring state: 1
VCE MAC Address: 0:10:fc:20:0:0
Total error samples Ethernet pkts sent: 1791
Total error samples Ethernet pkts discarded: 0
Total error samples statuses sent: 1791
Total error samples statuses discarded: 0

Cheers!

What was your sync prior to Vectoring?

Circa 43 Mb DS, very similar US. Just waiting for the DS SNRM to drop now because it increased to 5 dB after completing those tests earlier in the month. If it drops to 3 dB, then I should be able to get the max DS rate for our package, BT 55/10, which is not bad for a circa 900 m long line!

Anyone else seeing this long synchronisation issue on vectoring?

That is a known downside to vectoring

Any change to the error rates?

I think I read that vectoring is only being enabled downstream.

Oh right, how come? No, unfortunately the FEC's continue to rise as normal, so I can't think for the life of me what's causing them. Must be something that affects overhead cables.

Ah, I see.

A little time to syncronise timing with all the other lines, but the majority (I think) comes from having the modem & DSLAM go through additional crosstalk training, where the DSLAM sends a known pilot sequence of symbols, and the modem measures how "far away" from an ideal analogue result each received symbol happens to be.

The modem sends that data back to the DSLAM, which then calculates how those analogue "imperfections" are being caused from each of the other lines. From this, it works out how to negate crosstalk in future.

The part that (I think) makes this process slow is that the DSLAM has to send out that "known pilot sequence of symbols" on both your line and all the other active lines too. Obviously they are in use, so they can only use a small proportion of their symbols.

I guess that, with vectoring turned on, you can now be sure that those FECs aren't being caused by other subscribers. It is come from real external RFI ingress.

That's very interesting, thanks WWWombat! I wonder if Openreach will implement an update which will reduce the time.

Yes, I wonder what's causing it. The only thing I haven't turned off (that could be serving affecting) is our heat pump, because apparently doing that could cause a load of issues. But, I think it's more likely due to the condition of the line (I'd be surprised though as an engineer told me that the line was "perfect" earlier this year, however we have had a lot of wind and rain recently, so the line has been hit by trees and got very damp).

The only other thing I can think of is that the main power line (directly from the local sub station) crosses just above it, so that could be it. The line is overhead so it could also be being affected by the sun. What do you think to that?

Looking at your stats, your line barely gets any DS FEC's, is this because it's underground? I wonder if this issue just affects overhead VDSL lines...

Finally, one other thing I have noticed is that the FEC's don't continually rise, sometimes there can be a few seconds without there being any FEC's, but most of the time there is.

A selling point of G.fast is faster sync times compared to a figure of two minutes on Vectored VDSL2
