Abstract

This paper presents the four-generation model used in the development of the Michigan State University-National Science Foundation-Rockford Cablevision Two-Way Cable Project, concentrating on the first two generations of the plan which are currently operational in Rockford, Illinois. Significant space is devoted to a discussion of the initial cable system design philosophy, two-way cable system design precautions, experimental system operational design, spectrum assignment of services, return system, and finally maintenance of the plant. In addition to a discussion of the technology employed in the Rockford Project, a report on the performance of that technology is also presented.
