2 February 1993 Next generation CATV networks
Author Affiliations +
Advances in fiber optics, video compression and transmission technologies are driving the development and deployment of a new generation of CATV equipment. Optical fiber super- trunks are now expanding program delivery capabilities to over 150 channels and digital video compression will soon increase the capacity of existing satellite, fiber and cable systems by a factor of 5 to 10 or more. These next generation CATV systems will support Video on Demand (VOD) and advanced communications services such as broad band LAN/WAN networking and Personal Communications Services (PCS).
