Optical Network Technology: Future Impact on CATV Networks (1997)

By John Holobinko & Bill Hartman, ADC Telecommunications, Inc.

Future CATV networks may be able to transport video, data and voice services over large areas made possible by managing individual optical wavelength~ within a single fiber, each wavelength carrying a different service type or going to a different location. The capability of optically routing, switching, provisioning and otherwise controlling various services without intermediate optical/electrical/optical conversion will enable creation of "All Optical Networks". This paper discusses the current state of optical technology required for these networks, where this technology is first appearing within existing CATV infrastructure, and how it may positively impact the capital, operations and maintenance costs of future CATV networks.
