This paper presents a study of the effects of bridged taps on very high-speed digital subscriber line (VDSL) transmission systems. It is shown that the short bridged taps, which affect VDSL signals, are much more damaging than the longer bridged taps, which affect other xDSL signals, such as high-rate digital subscriber line (HDSL) and asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL). Specifically, short bridged taps introduce a lot of linear distortion in the loop's transfer function. In addition, they also tend to introduce more overall propagation loss than longer bridged taps. The peak-power-to-average-power ratio (PAR) of the signal increases for the loop with short bridged taps, and thus more A/D bits are needed in the implementation of a digital VDSL transceiver as compared to the loop with long bridged taps. The performance of various equalizer structures is discussed in the presence of a severe channel distortion caused by the bridged tap
