In many multiple-access communication systems, noise and interference corrupt transmitted signals, causing them to be received and decoded with errors. Examples of corruption sources are AWGN, burst noise, spurious narrowband signals, and in the multiple-access case, signals transmitted from other sources. Shared channels such as DOCSIS have a fundamental limit to scalability, due to the growth in number of entry points for sources of corruption.
