From the Publisher"Modern Cable Television Technology should be in the library of any company contemplating video services."
Intended as a day-to-day reference for cable engineers, this book illuminates all the technologies involved in building and maintaining a cable system. But it's also a great study guide for candidates for SCTE certification, and its careful explanations will benefit any technician whose work involves connecting to a cable system or building products that consume cable services.
*Written by four of the most highly-esteemed cable engineers in the industry with a wealth of experience in cable, consumer electronics, and telecommunications.
*All new material on digital technologies, new practices for delivering high speed data, home networking, IP-based voice technology, optical dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM), new video compression techniques, and integrated voice/video/data transport.
*Covers the latest on emerging digital standards for voice, data, video, and multimedia.
*Presents distribution systems, from drops through fiber optics, an covers everything from basic principles to network architectures.
Audience: Cable engineers, telecom engineers, computer network engineers, and consumer electronics engineers.
