The use of coding error control is an integral part of the design of modern communication systems. Capacity-approaching codes such as turbo and LDPC codes, discovered or rediscovered in the past decade, offset near-Shannon-limit performance on the AWGN channel with rather low implementation complexity and are therefore increasingly being applied for error control in various fields of data communications. This article describes a generic multilevel modulation and coding scheme based on the use of turbo-like, or LDPC codes for DSL system. It is shown that such codes provide significant gains in performance and allow an increase in data rate and/or loop reach that can be instrumental to the widespread deployment of future DSL services. Such techniques are also suitable for general multilevel modulation system in other application areas.
