Paper Abstract

Regulatory restrictions effectively limit Telco participation in CATV to transport service. The use of fiber optics for CATV transport is now economically viable. Having a large embedded fiber network and extensive experience, NYNEX investigated the opportunity of providing a CATV transport service. While pursuing the development of a tariffed service based on AM transmission we encountered technical and operational obstacles as well as a reluctance by the CATV industry to use Telco transport.
