A survey on impulsive noise modeling.

Jorge Torres Gómez


Impulsive noise is an undesirable signal from the communications channel that corrupts the transmitted
signal in communications systems. Example of such a systems are Digital Television, Power
Line Communications and Underwater Acoustic Communications in which the transmitted signals are
more affected by this type of noise than by the typical AWGN noise. The current article summarizes
several studies on impulsive noise from an statistical point of view. In this concern a variety of models
are presented analytically and the main characteristics are described through the use of graphical
representations. Furthermore, some ideas for future research field are also discussed.
