FTTH broadband access with RF Video Overlay
With RF Video Overlay, the TV signal will transmitted parallel with
the data stream so that more capacity is available for other data
services. A bottleneck is avoided.
Fiber networks to the home are not only perfectly suitable for data

possible. The reconversion of the optical signals takes place at
the end customer. For this purpose, HUBER+SUHNER BKtel has
developed the XON series of termination units that fit different
customer requirements (TV and/or Internet). With "RF Video
