HDWDM upgrade of CATV fibre-coax networks for broadband interactive services

Koonen, A.M.J., Willems, F.W., Vander, J.C., Muys, W., Verbeck, B.H., Lerminiaux, C. and Hempstead, M. (1996) HDWDM upgrade of CATV fibre-coax networks for broadband interactive services At ECOC '96, Norway. 15 - 19 Sep 1996.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


To introduce broadband interactive services in a fibre-coax CATV network with high splitting ratio, a HDWDM upgrading strategy in combination with conventional TDMA (or SCMA) techniques is presented. It features flexible network reconfiguration via wavelength reassignment at the optical network units. Key system item is a novel cost-effective bidirectional Erbium-doped fibre (/planar waveguide) amplifier handling simultaneously a high-grade analogue CATV downstream signal and multiwavelength interactive signals in a single fibre-coax network.
