James Farmer is the Chief Technical Officer and Executive Vice President of Quality at ANTEC.

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
