Fiber Optic Technology For CATV Supertrunk Applications (1985)

By James A. Chiddix, Oceanic Cablevision, Inc.

A review of the optical fiber technology currently available for long-haul, multi-channel CATV interconnections, intended to provide groundwork for CATV system engineers exploring fiber optic options for their applications. Video FM coaxial transmission techniques are reviewed and compared with both analog and digital video fiber optic transmission. Performance and cost comparisons are made. The conclusion is drawn that while video FM coaxial transmission continues to have advantages, both analog and digital video fiber transmission are already attractive alternatives in some applications, and will become more so in the future.
