Title Cable networks for television signals, sound signals and interactive services - Part 10: System performance for return paths(TA5)
Project Number 24521
Abstract/Scope IEC 60728-10:2014 specifies the transparent return path of cable networks operated in the frequency range between 5 MHz and 85 MHz or parts thereof. The upper frequency limit of the return path is reduced to 65 MHz where FM radio signals are transmitted in a cable network. Higher frequencies may be used in fibre based networks. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2005 and constitutes a technical revision. It includes the following changes: - update on the state-of-the-art of return path transmission in cable networks; - provisions for DOCSIS 3.0 and EuroDOCSIS 3.0 transmission standards; - revision of subclause 4.3 on measurement of channel level; - new subclause 4.12 for method of measurement of noise power ratio (NPR) on return paths; - new subclause 4.13 for 10-tone measurements; - new subclause 4.14 for method of measurement of modulation error ratio (MER); - revision of subclause 5.2 on analogue parameters influencing system performance.

Normative reference (6)  

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
