2. OPTICAL NETWORKS
3. Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC)
4. Fiber-To-The-Curb (FTTC)
5. Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH)
Resulted in the migration from unidirectional coax Cable TV infrastructure to HFC networks.
Q & A
In this architecture the coax line will be shared among different homes.
I- Fewer numbers of active electronic devices which in turn result in more network interruptions resulting definitely in minimized maintenance cost.
II- Allow for higher bandwidth which can be upgraded to fully optical (FTTH) to allow for more bandwidth.
I- Since we are using fiber, then the cost of implementation will be more.
II- The copper which uses VDSL is very short for about 200m.
"Fiber to the building"(FTTB) refers to installing optical fiber from the telephone company central office to a specific building such as a business or apartment house.
“Hybrid Fiber Coax" (HFC) refers to installing the fiber up to mid node between the network provider and the consumer. You can refer to the figure below to see clearly the difference.
