In this paper we investigate the tracking performance of the downstream (DS) crosstalk (XT) channel estimation based on the reported signal to noise ratio (SNR), in particular for digital subscriber line (DSL) systems. Aiming to its simplicity, the SNR-assisted XT estimation, has been recognized in ITU as a backward compatible method that does not require any change in the very high speed digital subscriber line 2 (VDSL2) standard. This low complex algorithm can be used for XT channel estimation in dynamic spectrum management (DSM) techniques today. The algorithm as proposed, relies on sending perturbing signals on the victim lines (VLs) and reporting the SNRs by those lines to acquire the crosstalk channel from some disturber line (DL) to the VLs. We generalize this concept to include full startup, tracking and joining scenarios as well as the impact of different perturbation signal choices. Simulation results reveal that starting from no crosstalk precompensation, and updating a precoder matrix based on the DS crosstalk channel estimates, the far-end crosstalk (FEXT) free SNR can be reached in few iterations (36 SNR measurements for the four lines case).
