Can Optical Fiber Compete With Coaxial Cable? (1983)

By Garold S. Tjaden, Cox Cable Communications, Inc.

This paper concentrates on two major issues in comparing the optical fiber and coaxial cable media:

  1. the relative capability of delivering a wide range of telecommunication services, and
  2. comparison of the cost-effectiveness of the resulting coaxial network with the most likely future alternative, the switched optical fiber network.

It is shown that the coaxial cable medium has certain natural advantages over the switched approach which lead to significant cost advantages for the coaxial medium.
