What do vectoring states mean?
« on: August 19, 2017, 02:38:30 PM »

We know that Huawei-based modems report six vectoring states, but does anyone know exactly what the different states mean? The six states are:

0 = VECT_WAIT_FOR_CONFIG
1 = VECT_FULL
2 = VECT_WAIT_FOR_TRIGGER
3 = VECT_RUNNING
4 = VECT_DISABLED
5 = VECT_UNCONFIGURED

So far we've seen values of 1 and 5 - 1 means fully operational, and 5 means that vectoring is not available on the connection being monitored. What do the others mean?

Thanks, yes, that makes sense. So 3 would be a transient state while the connection is being established.

I noticed state 3 gets displayed at regular intervals. It happens during transmission of the error samples and then switches back to state 1.

Thank you. So it's more dynamic than I was expecting.

I assume 3 is when vectoring state is enabled to stop the service interrupting full vectored lines but it has no active crosstalk filtering on itself.
1 is fully enabled which stops crosstalk from lines in 1 or 3 status.

5 seems to appear when is no vectoring support, 4 is probably when is support but disabled.

This leaves just 2 and 0 which might be what it shows during synchronisation.

Thank you for the contributions. The background to this is that we want to provide more helpful information to users about the vectoring status of their connections. If anyone has information to add, it would be appreciated.
