The poor capability of bandwidth management on the current CATV network hinders the promotion of multi-media streaming services. This paper proposes a solution by applying stream-code partition on the S-CDMA system adopted in the DOCSIS 2.0 standard. The method makes use of the Fine Granularity Scalability source coding and offers an efficient way for uplink rate control, so that bandwidth management can be performed in an extremely flexible manner.
