Paper Abstract

This paper examines the use of probabilistic techniques for the calculation of through-losses in optical distribution networks for the transmission of Frequency Division Multiplexed (FDM) AM signals for Cable Television (CATV). Application of worst case versus statistical calculations are shown, as well as the benefits of the statistical approach. The paper provides theoretical analysis, a statistical field application, and provides the measurement results of an installed network based on this approach. The field planning calculations are compared to data measured in the deployed network, a system supplying Cable Television service to approximately 4500 subscribers via a branched fiber-optic distribution network.
