Hybrid Fibre-Coax (HFC)


Hybrid Fibre-Coax (HFC) is a network which is based on a combination of optical fibre and coaxial cable to create a broadband network. A HFC architecture is commonly used by cable TV operators.

Older cable tv networks used only coaxial cable. In modern networks, optical fibre is used for the transport from the headend to a street cabinet in the neighbourhood. Coaxial cables are used from the street cabinet to the individual subscribers.
