An Economic Model Of The Selection Process: Microwave Versus Conventional Techniques In CATV Distribution (1974)

By Norman F. Woods, Theta-com of California

When is the use of multi-channel microwave economically attractive? How can the technical trade-offs be converted into dollars? The models used in assessing the parameters of the decision process will be discussed. These include a comparison of alternative methods of signal delivery such as super trunk, separate headends, and multi-channel microwave. Further consideration of the selection process includes estimated signal quality given the alternate distribution methods and the effect. of this siqnal quality on distribution system cost. A method of assessing the viability of the addition of another subscriber area will be discussed.
