Description

同轴电缆家庭网络以及通过网络通信的方法

技术领域

[0001]本发明涉及信息网络,更具体地说,涉及一种通过通信线路(例如,同轴电缆)传递信息(例如媒体信息)、从而形成通信网络的技术。

背景技术

[0002]使用同轴电缆的网络技术已经为人所知。多媒体同轴电缆联盟(Multimedia overCoax Alliance(MoCA™))在其网站mocalliance.0rg上提供了通过现有的家用同轴电缆、联网数字视频和娱乐的合适规范的例子,其中该家庭已经分配为开放成员。MoCA 1.1规范通过引用全文合并于此。

[0003]同轴电缆家庭网络接入家用同轴电缆上可利用的大量未使用带宽。美国70%以上的家庭已经在家庭基础设施中安装了同轴电缆。许多家庭在一个或多个主要的娱乐场所都设有现有的同轴电缆,例如家庭活动室、媒体室、主卧室和其它地点。家庭网络技术允许户主们将这个架构作为网络系统使用,并以高服务质量(QoS)传递娱乐和信息程序。

[0004]同轴电缆家庭网络的这种技术提供了高速(270mbps)、高服务质量、以及结合有分组级加密的屏蔽、有线连接带来的固有安全。同轴电缆允许携载高带宽视频。今天,它常被用于安全传递数百万美元付款的以天数为基础的付费节目和付费视频内容。同轴电缆家庭网络也可被用作多无线接入点的高速链路,该多无线接入点用于将无线网络延伸到消费者的整个家庭。

[0005]同轴电缆家庭网络提供了通过现有同轴电缆到视频设备目前在家庭内所在位置的一致的、高吞吐量的、高质量连接。同轴电缆家庭网络提供了数字娱乐的主要链接,并可与其它有线和无线网络保持一致,从而将娱乐体验延伸到整个家庭。

[0006]目前,使用接入技术的同轴电缆家庭网络,例如非对称用户数字线(Asynchronous Digital Subscriber,ADSL)、超高速数字用户线(Very high bitrateDigital Subscriber Line,VDSL)服务或者光纤到户(Fiber to the Home,FTTH),它们通常通过双绞线对或者光纤接入家庭,对ADSL而言,在几百千赫到8.5MHz的频带运行,对于VDSL而言,在几百千赫到12MHz的频带运行。当服务通过未知的数字用户线(xDSL)或者FTTH到达家庭,它们可通过同轴电缆家庭网络技术和家庭内同轴电缆路由到视频设备。电缆功能,例如视频、语音和互联网访问,都可通过同轴电缆由电缆操作者提供给家庭,并使用在家庭内运行的同轴电缆到达单个电缆服务使用设备,这些设备位于家庭内的不同房间。典型地,同轴电缆家庭网络类型的功能与电缆功能在不同的频率上并行运行。

[0007]因此期望减少与MoCA网络连接的MoCA设备的等待时间和/或改进其吞吐量。

[0057]该说明书描述了采用MoCA设备减少等待时间和/或改善吞吐量的方法,这些MoCA设备已经根据本发明进行了改进。这些MoCA设备可以是MoCA网络上的节点。使用同轴电缆的集合连接多个网络节点,来构造该MoCA网络。该网络中的每个节点可被配置为请求根据本发明构建的消息。有许多类型的消息可以被用于MoAC网络。

[0058] MoCA网络中的典型消息包括有效载荷部分和前导部分。有效载荷部分包括通过网络传输的数据。前导部分包括一个或多个符号,接收器可使用该符号以改善消息的接收的方式来调节一个或多个接收器参数。

[0059] MoCA网络中的一些消息被称为短脉冲消息。这些消息很短,以至于用于发送消息尤其是这些消息的前导的开销过度繁重,变成MoCA网络低效的原因。

[0060] MoCA网络是0FDM网络,利用在MoCA规范中列出的多个星座。每个星座可以被解释为点矩阵。每个点可允许传输一定数量的比特。在MoCA规范中使用的所有比特都通过这些点发射。MoCA设备可包括接收器,该接收器可被看作是星座的点,且可根据前导中的信道调节符号调节其参数。MoCA设备还可包括对接收器请求进行响应的发射器。

[0061] 本发明的系统合/或方法用于发射和接收用于短脉冲消息的减小大小(reduced-si z e) 的前导 。该系统和/或方法可减小前导大小 ,同时可选地改变用于调制MoCA 网络中的信号的星座的解译(interpretat1n)。可通过减少从一些或全部点解译的比特数量,来减小星座。当接收器请求(也就是,表示接收的能力)缩短的前导时,缩短的前导和减小的星座 (如果要求的话)可以被发送/使用。

[0062] 节点使用几种类型的消息进行通信。消息由0FDM符号构建,并通常以前导部分开始。每个0FDM符号可以包括循环前缀,该循环前缀包括特定构造的比特样式,使得0FDM中信道的正交性可以被接收器改进。前导可以被用于调节接收器参数,该参数用于控制比特接收的准确性。[〇〇63]在MoCA前导中通常包括两种CE符号。CE符号是另一个特别设定的比特组。接收器可使用CE符号的接收来改进滤波器的准确性,该滤波器用于提取0FDM星座比特。典型的前导大小与0FDM系统中的SC数量成比例,特别是当消息有效载荷很小时,前导大小可以是重要的开销负担。[〇〇64] 某些消息类型属于短脉冲消息类别(category ),例如,RR,ACK等。短消息脉冲在长度上(包括开销)少于200字节(2000比特),而不包括MAC开销。MoCA网络使用0H)M符号来发射比特集。每个0FDM符号包括大约4000比特。

[0065]图1示出了使用典型前导的典型短脉冲消息100。短脉冲消息100包括典型前导110 和有效载荷部分120。典型的前导110包括由“S”表示的可选短串行部分(short series sect1n)lll、由“CP0”表示的较大循环前缀部分112、由“CE”表示的第一CE部分113和第二 CE部分114XP0是第一 CE符号的循环前缀。第二CE符号没有CP。可选的短串行部分的典型长度为64采样(sample),但是可以有更大或更小。较大的循环前缀部分的长度为160采样,且每个CE部分的长度为512采样,这使得典型前导的总长度在1184-1248采样之间。[〇〇66]有效载荷部分120包括循环前缀部分121和0FDM数据部分122,它们共同形成一个 0FDM符号。CP部分的长度为60采样,0FDM数据部分122的长度为512采样,使得有效载荷部分 120的总长度为572采样。包括典型前导110的完整短脉冲消息的长度在1756-1820采样之间,大体上小于MoCA网络使用的普通0FDM符号的容量的50%。典型短脉冲消息100包含三种 0FDM符号,没有可选的短串行部分111。[〇〇67]图2示出了根据本发明原理、使用短前导210的实施例的短脉冲消息200。短脉冲消息200包括短前导210和有效载荷部分220。短前导210包括由“S”表示的可选短串行部分 211、由“CP0”表示的较大循环前缀部分212,由“CE”表示的CE部分213XP0是CE符号的循环前缀。可选的短串行部分的典型长度为64采样(sample),但是可以更大或更小。较大的循环前缀部分的长度为160采样,且CE部分的长度为大约512采样,这使得短前导210的长度大约在672-736采样之间。[〇〇68] 有效载荷部分220包括CP部分221和0FDM数据部分222XP部分的长度大约为60采样,OFDM数据部分222的长度大约为512采样,使得有效载荷部分220的总长度为572采样。包括根据本发明的短前导210的完整短脉冲消息200的合适长度在1244-1308采样之间,小于MoCA网络使用的普通OFDM符号的容量的50%。短脉冲消息200包含两种OFDM符号,没有可选的短串行部分111,因此改善了短脉冲消息的带宽利用。

[0069]使用包括在短前导210中的单个CE部分213、而不是典型前导110中的两个CE部分113、114,降低了 MoCA网络中所接收的信噪比的质量。单个CE符号的较短比特序列导致以更低的准确度调节信道估计。当接收器选择接收短前导210,它可能期望补偿信道均衡的损失。因此,当请求短前导210时,接收器也可请求使用减少的星座。减少的星座减少了星座的某些或全部点的每赫兹的比特数。减少的比特可以将信噪比(SNR)中的噪声裕度改进至6dB,以便传输短脉冲消息。该改进的SNR容限可以补偿短前导210中丢失的CE部分。

[0070] 星座中每赫兹的比特数的减少将示范性OFDM符号中的比特数量减少至3000比特。由于示范性短脉冲消息在长度上小于2000比特,可用比特的数量减少不会降低传输的效率。

[0071]图3示出了根据本发明的单核或多核模块330,它可以是根据本发明的示意性数据处理系统300的一个或多个集成电路。数据处理系统300可包括以下一个或多个组件:1/0电路320、外围设备310、处理器340和存储器350。这些组件可以通过系统总线或者其它互联连接360连接在一起,且设置在最终用户系统的电路板370上,该最终用户系统可通过接口与同轴电缆媒介通信。

[0072]因此,已经描述了一种用于提供MoCA短脉冲前导的系统和方法。

[0073]已经参照解释性的实施例对本发明的各方面进行了描述。本技术领域的人员将会理解,在后附的权利要求的范围和精神内,可以存在很多附加的实施例、修改和改变。例如,本技术领域的人员将会理解,图示的步骤可以以所述顺序以外的其它顺序执行,且所述的一个或多个步骤是可选的。上述实施例的方法和系统可包括其它附加的元素、步骤、计算机可执行指令或者计算机可读数据结构。关于这一点,在此公开的其它实施例也可以通过例如存储计算机可执行指令或者模块、或者利用计算机可读数据结构在计算机可读媒介上部分或者全部实施。
