Cable is now as much in the broadband business as it is television. This book explains the fundamentals of coaxial cable technology and the DSP that controls it, along with the cable modem and voice over IP technology now drastically changing the cable operators’ business. Aimed at working engineers and technicians, it can also be used a textbook for the a basic cable communications course in a 2 year tech program.


Cable Communications Technology provides a fast track to hands-on mastery of the technical side of broadband cable. Written by an insider in this rapidly growing field, who is also a talented teacher, Eugene R. Bartlett's text lays out the practical instructions and explanations needed by those who make cable systems work. Perfect for engineers and technicians looking to update and expand their cable capabilities, this comprehensive tutorial is also the ideal text for educational courses and training programs. Each chapter opens with objectives and closes with worked examples and Q&A's for self-testing.
