The performance of an adaptive echo canceller at the looptimed subscriber end of a digital subscriber loop has been shown to be sensitive to jitter arising from the timing recovery subsystem. We evaluate this degradation for the common timing recovery subsystem consisting of a prefilter, a squarer, and a second-order phase-locked loop. The evaluation shows the influence of equalization, prefilter shape, and phaselocked loop parameters. A narrow-band accurately tuned prefilter, line equalizer, and a narrow-band phase-locked loop are found to be necessary for adequate performance in a 144 kbit/s bipolar-coded digital subscriber loop system employing echo cancellation.
