Paper Abstract

Economic wideband, linear fiber optic transmitters and receivers pave the way for broadband to the home. The diamond network architecture (DNA) delivers 1 GHz bandwidth. This provides standard video, HDTV, and switched two-way broadband digital services to the home. An economic model is presented using the DNA that considers the impact of digital TV, HDTV, and the evolution of switched voice and data services on a CATV system.
