Crosstalk is a major source of performance degradation in modern xDSL systems. Optimal Spectrum Balancing (OSB) is an algorithm that mitigates the effect of crosstalk by allocating optimal transmit spectra to all interfering DSL modems. Unfortunately, its complexity grows exponentially with the number of lines in the binder. For multiple user scenarios this becomes computationally intractable. This paper presents a branch and bound approach to OSB. The proposed branch and bound operations require almost no computation keeping the total computational complexity low. Simulations show enormous complexity reductions, especially for a large number of users.
