A CATV network which has a switched double star configuration, fiber to the home (FTTH) and full digital transmission has been tested to see the feasibility with one Head-End (HE), one Central Office (CO), one Distribution Center (DC), and 25 subscribers. Also POTS and NISDN services have been provided to 5 subscribers. Single mode optical fibers are fully deployed from a HE to subscribers. A PON with TDM/polling scheme has been implemented considering the economic issue. Also in the outside plant, we tried to use the existing facility including the in-house duct. This paper deals with the results of the trial and some issues on the operational view.
