Access facilities using hybrid fibre/copper networks
This Recommendation gives information and guidelines about access facilities using HFC ("Hybrid Fibre/Copper") networks.HFC networks are necessary for the future introduction of multimedia services with several broadband applications. HFC networks offer more chances of use as only pure networks for telecommunication or for CATV (Cable Television) distribution. Additional services as Pay-TV, Pay-per-View, Video-on Demand, home-banking, -working, -shopping and Internet access can be offered by means of these networks.HFC networks represent also a step in the evolution process to GII (Global Information Infrastructure), that means a connection between CATV, telecommunications, data and mobile networks. Appendix II provides examples of HFC networks.
