Challenges And Solutions In The Introduction Of Digital Services In Home Coax Wiring (1995)

By Jack B. Terry, Northern Telecom and James 0. Farmer, ANTEC

It is well recognized that the home coax wiring is a most variable and challenging element of a CATV network, particularly when handling digital signals. This paper identifies a wider than previously described range of issues and how these issues may be effectively dealt with without the need to rewire the home. Variable or intermittent home wiring performance, caused by subscriber changes in equipment configuration, is an additional challenge. A solution set to these and other issues is proposed which keeps the cable company in control, provides for maintenance, and permits existing and variable home coax distribution to be used for digital services without additional truck-rolls. The paper concludes with some results of lab measurements and plans for field transmission robustness verification.
