The authors answer the common questions of cable operators and system and equipment designers about the return path system. They discuss only return signals that are in a frequency band below the forward signals, and assume that only digital signals are carried back to the headend on the return path. The appendices include material on the baseband digital structures of the public switched network and the protocols of the Internet, and on ways to transport analog video on the return path and to measure digital signals with a spectrum analyzer.

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:
