pp. 14-23

This paper discusses a local distribution system for interactive multimedia TV (IMTV) to the home. The network architecture considered here is fiber to the curb, and local distribution of the IMTV signals to and from the home is provided on telephone wiring and coaxial cable. The downstream IMTV channel, from the curb to the home, operates at a data rate of 51.84 Mbps, and the upstream channel, from the home to the curb, operates at a data rate of 1.62 Mbps.
