9780123744012: Broadband Cable Access Networks: The HFC Plant (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Networking)

This book focuses on broadband distribution and systems architecture and concentrates on practical concepts that will allow the reader to do their own design, improvement, and troubleshooting work. The objective is to enhance the skill sets of a large population that designs and builds broadband cable plants, as well as those maintaining and troubleshooting it. A large cross-section of technical personnel who need to learn these skills design, maintain, and service HFC systems from signal creation through transmission to reception and processing at the customer end point. In addition, data/voice and video specialists need to master and reference the basics of HFC design and distribution before contending with the intricacies of their own unique services. This book serves as an essential reference to all cable engineers - those who specifically design and maintain the HFC distribution plant as well as those primarily concerned with data/voice technology as well as video technology. Included is an online component consisting of spreadsheets that were used in developing the material presented in the book. This book concentrates on practical concepts that will allow the user to do his own design, improvement, and trouble-shooting work. It prepares cable engineers and technicians to work with assurance as they face the latest developments and future directions. It is concise and tightly focused, allowing readers to easily find answers to questions about an idea or concept they are developing in this area.

Review:

"I think the book would be a valuable addition. I think a straightforward text will appeal to the cable engineers and technicians, and be a valuable reference for anyone designing or maintaining an HFC plant...I think it will address the target audience well. There is a lot of cable-specific lore in this area, and the authors are known authorities and that carries a lot of weight in the cable community. -- Michael Adams, VP System Architecture, Tandberg TV/Ericsson Group "Something in-between the "how-to" or craft-oriented books generally available and the authors' big book is a useful addition... The proposal seems to properly excise the relevant signal distribution topics from the previous book. There may be additional interest from those at Verizon or AT/T building systems that contain an 'hfc overlay'. The Chapter and other teaching/instruction sections of the SCTE may find this book useful." -- Dan Pike, CTO, GCI Cable
