Paper Abstract

This paper provides an overview of Bellcore's activities in the area of nationally compatible, customer controllable, DS3 rate (45 Mb/s), multipoint, digital networks for distribution to and collection from affiliates of broadcast quality NTSC television on terrestrial digital fiber optic and microwave interoffice transmission facilities (more than 215 cities are now interconnected) in a manner which rivals today's domestic satellite networks in performance, reliability, flexibility and security. It also outlines a three year work program leading toward a multi-carrier, multi-supplier, multi-broadcaster trial of such a network.
