Broadband Hybrid Fiber/Coax Access System Technologies
This book is the first to present a thorough quantitative physical reasoning and analyses on HFC system technologies, including subcarrier multiplexed lightwave transmission systems and components, RF modems for digital signals, and medium-access control protocols. This book will be very helpful to graduate students and R&D engineers, as it contains the main concepts and analytical tools needed to design a successful broadband HFC system.

About Winston I. Way
Winston I. Way received his PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1983. From 1984 until 1992, he was wth Applied Research of Bellcore, researching various projects in lightwave systems and pioneering projects in distributing satellite, digital radio, and cable television signals by using subcarrier multiplex techniques. In 1992 he joined the Department of Communications Engineering at National Chiao-Tung University, where he is now a professor, and chair of the department. Dr. Way has published a book chapter and more than 90 referred technical papers in international journals and conferences, and has been serving as a chair or technical program committee member in numerous IEEE/LEOS and IEEE/MTT international conferences. A Senior member of IEEE, he was an IEEE Journal guest editor in 1990, and is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America.
