HFC Networks

From the headend to the wall-outlet


The HFC networks of network providers and city carriers are no longer solely designed for the broadcasting of analog and digital TV programs. During the last few years communication services such as broadband Internet access, Video-on-Demand and telephony have been added. Beyond that, customers want to use more and more high definition content on their mobile end devices, which have to be provided by the network operator. These new interactive TV and data services in particular increase the requirements for flexibility and bandwidth in the backbone as well as the access network.
