This book is the first to present a thorough quantitative physical reasoning and analyses on HFC system technologies, including subcarrier multiplexed lightwave transmission systems and components, RF modems for digital signals, and medium-access control protocols. This book will be very helpful to graduate students and R&D engineers, as it contains the main concepts and analytical tools needed to design a successful broadband HFC system.
* The first in-depth book that systematically covers end-to-end hybrid fiber/coax broadband access technologies
* The first book to cover subcarrier multiplexed lightwave systems and components for video and wireless signal distributions in great depth
* The first book to overview the design principles for both RF modems and cable modem MAC protocols
* A comprehensive study for graduate students and engineers who wish to do R&D in the fast growing field of optical-fiber-based two-way CATV systems and networks

Hybrid fiber/coax (HFC) systems are fast becoming a major transmission vehicle for interactive broadband access to the World Wide Web, l-phone, and other multimedia applications; as well as providing the best transmission media for broadcasting many high-quality analog video channels to subscribers' premises. Broadband Hybrid Fiber/Coax Access System Technologies is the first book to present a thorough quantitative reasoning and analysis of HFC system technologies, including subcarrier multiplexed lightwave transmission systems and components, Radio Frequency (RF) modems for digital signals, and medium-access control protocols proposed by important standards bodies. Designed to help graduate students and R&D engineers grasp the main concepts and analytical toolds used in designing broadband HFC systems, Dr. Winston I. Way explains how optical fiber systems can be used to transport radio frequency (RF) CATB signals, digital multimedia signals, and wireless signals-all on radio frequency carriers. Broadband Hybrid Fiber/Coax Access System Technologies also covers optical fiber devices and systems, RF modem design, and medium access protocol in great detail.About the Author:
Winston I. Way received his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1983. From 1984 until 1992, he was wth Applied Research of Bellcore, researching various projects in lightwave systems and pioneering projects in distributing satellite, digital radio, and cable television signals by using subcarrier multiplex techniques. In 1992 he joined the Department of Communications Engineering at National Chiao-Tung University, where he is now a professor, and chair of the department. Dr. Way has published a book chapter and more than 90 referred technical papers in international journals and conferences, and has been serving as a chair or technical program committee member in numerous IEEE/LEOS and IEEE/MTT international conferences. A Senior member of IEEE, he was an IEEE Journal guest editor in 1990, and is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America.
