This is the first complete guide to designing two-way cable systems that can support tomorrow's most exciting, high-demand applications. This book walks step-by-step through the construction of bi-directional cable systems. Learn how the systems are designed, what equipment is needed, how systems are implemented, and what special ongoing maintenance issues must be addressed. Learn the fundamentals of two-way system capacity planning, and how to account for new applications such as video-on-demand and Internet access. Learn about options for controlling return data coming from customers via the coax network. The book also contains extensive coverage of migration to digital hybrid fiber-coax systems from traditional one-way analog coax. For all cable system operators, managers, system designers, engineers, technicians and suppliers.

THE INDISPENSABLE GUIDE FOR CABLE OPERATORS, SYSTEM DESIGNERS, 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.About the Author:
