Copper / Coax / CATV

The history of CATV

From the beginning of the 1970s CATV has made rapid strides in the Netherlands. In the 1990s, digital television made its appearance and turned out as a crucial addition to the original concept. The possibilities regarding the quality of sound and vision for the consumer substantially increased.

The principle of Community Access Television (CATV)

In general, a CATV network contains the following components:

  1. A headend, which is the central part of the network and determines which channels are being transmitted and at what frequency
  2. A fiber optic transmission network from the district centre to the headend
  3. A coaxial access network from the district centre to the customer
  4. Cabling in the house of the customer

The entire network is called a Hybrid Fiber Coaxial network (HFC).
