What is hybrid fiber optic cable?

Hybrid fiber coaxial cable (HFC cable) is a communication medium that combines the transmission modes based on optical fiber and coaxial cables into a unified path. It provides voice, Internet, cable television and other digital interactive solutions and services to individual consumers and organizations. HFC cables are used by telecommunications, cable TV and Internet companies.


Fiber Optic Cable


In a typical HFC cable scenario, the service provider extends the fiber optic backbone close to the customer/end user and terminates it at the node equipment. From the node device, the optical signal transmitted by the fiber is converted into a radio frequency signal, transmitted through the coaxial cable, and expanded until it reaches the end user or device.



For example, a cable Internet service provider (ISP) might use fiber optics to run from the central office to each branch switch in town. From there, the internet is carried over coaxial cable to the customer's home or office. This combination of fiber optic and coax allows higher speeds to be reached over a fiber optic backbone close to the customer, while maintaining economy and compatibility over coax based transmission to the end user/consumer.



Premier Cable offers a variety of hybrid cable combinations to meet your specific needs. From fiber and unshielded twisted pair (UTP), coaxial and UTP, to any custom combination, we can design and manufacture the exact hybrid cables you need to make your deployment easier and faster.
