A description is presented of an analytical/numerical approach to the characterization of the 2-wire twisted-pair subscriber loop plant for high-speed digital communications. With this approach it is possible to predict the resulting error probability performance as a function of signal-to-noise ratio for a given set of input parameters representing a particular subscriber loop and its noise environment, including such effects as crosstalk and impulse noise. The results are useful in penetration assessment studies of the loop plant population at a fixed grade of service measured objectively in terms of operating bit error probability. In the present paper the authors describe the modeling assumptions together with the analytical/numerical techniques underlying this approach. Sample graphical output of an extensive computer program implementing this approach is provided as illustration.
