Broadband Return Systems for Hybrid Fiber/Coax Cable TV Networks Summary


Broadband Return Systems for Hybrid Fiber/Coax Cable TV Networks by Donald Raskin

THE INDISPENSABLE GUIDE FOR CABLE OPERATORS, SYSTEM DESIGNERS, AND SUPPLIERS *Internet access, VOD, video games, telephony, and other interactive services *Overcoming the myths of return path engineering *Controlling RF noise and optimizing segmentation *Estimating network availability: practical new techniques *Detailed appendices cover digital measurements, transport, and access *For system operators, managers, designers, engineers, technicians, and suppliers This is the first complete guide to designing and deploying two-way cable systems that support tomorrow's most exciting applications. For cable operators, it delivers a complete primer on two-way services, capacity and equipment planning, performance analysis, setup, and maintenance. System designers will gain an in-depth understanding of equipment requirements for the headend, distribution system, and home. They will learn how to "future-proof" the network by making architectural and design choices that allow for cost-effective growth. For equipment designers, this book provides in-depth coverage of both performance requirements and the technical characteristics of the return path.Broadband Return Systems for Hybrid Fiber/Coax Cable TV Networks is the first CATV design guide with end-to-end cover age of analog coaxial analysis, fiber optics, digital cable, and telephony. It includes specific, up-to-date guidance on HFC plant design, plant powering, reliability criteria, network management, and security.
