Development Of A CATV Technical Practices Manual (1979)

By Michael McKeown, Cox Cable Communications

A Technical Practices Manual as described in this paper can be considered a company operations manual for the technical personnel in a cable television (CATV) system. As a fast growing multiple system operator (MSO) Cox Cable saw a need to document and codify its technical practices to provide new systems with proven operational standards and procedures and help insure that its geographically widely spread existing systems met uniformly high operating standards. Included in this paper are the concepts involved in producing such a document and limited excerpts from the Technical Practices Manual which resulted from this work.
