A new echo cancellation structure for discrete multitone systems is presented, where each used tone has its own per-tone echo canceller in addition to a per-tone equalizer, which provides an alternative to currently employed time domain and time/frequency domain approaches. The per-tone approach enables us to optimize the signal-to-noise ratio for each tone separately by solving a minimum mean-square error problem for each tone, with implicit so-called joint shortening. Complexity during data transmission is compared for time domain, time/frequency domain, and per-tone echo cancellation. Structures with reduced complexity are derived for an interpolated and a decimated rate setup. Finally, simulation results for an asymmetric digital subscriber line setting demonstrate improved performance over time domain (or time/frequency domain) echo cancellation.
