higher power output-significantly more errored seconds
« on: August 25, 2017, 04:37:21 PM »

I have significantly more errors on synchronization rate about 18800 kbps with power output 18.6 dBm than on synchronization rate about 20400 kpbs with power output 18.3 dBm? On 18800 kbps I have about 200 CRC errors per hour. On 20400 kpbs I have about 30 CRC errors per hour.  How is it possible? Does DSLAM send less stable signal at higher power output?

Best regards

30 is less than 200, not more.

I have had to construct a table with the information you have provided so as to clearly see the effect --

Power (dBm)  Sync (kbps)  CRC per hr
      18.3    20400     ~30
      18.6    18800    ~200

I am unable to see any obvious correlation. Perhaps the decrease in synchronisation speed is a direct result of the increased number of CRCs.

As for your question about the DSLAM, I would think it was unlikely . . . or to put it another way, I would think it was not a designed feature. Surely the best people to ask would be the DSLAM's manufacturer?

Unfortunately I missed SNR margin.

Power (dBm)  Sync (kbps)  CRC per hr  SNRM (dB)
      18.3    20400     ~30   ~3
      18.6    18800    ~200   ~6

Now having the relevant SNRM values, we can see they align with the observed synchronisation speeds.

I have to ask the question: Is the 0.3 dBm change in power level particularly significant?

Let's do the calculations. The formula is --

P = 10(X/10) mW

where P is the power (in mW) and X is the value in dB

For 18.3 dBm, P = 10(18.3/10) mW ~ 67.6 mW

For 18.6 dBm, P = 10(18.6/10) mW ~ 72.4 mW

It is not significant for synchronization speed. Usually with power output 18.3 dBm I have merely 200 less synchronization rate but why I have significantly less CRC errors than on the significantly lower synchronization with significantly higher SNR margin? It is not only single observation. I always have this curious effect.

I agree. It is a puzzle and I am unable to explain why it happens.  :(
