This part of IEC 60728 is applicable to optical transmission system for broadcast signal transmission that consists of a head-end equipment, optical transmission lines, in-house wirings and a system outlet. The system is primarily intended for television and sound signals using analogue and/or digital transmission technology. This standard specifies the basic system parameters and methods of measurement for optical distribution system having a system outlet in order to assess the system performance and its performance limits.
The purpose of this part of IEC 60728 is to describe the system specification of FTTH (fibre to the home) network for broadcast signal transmission. This standard is also applicable to the broadcast signal transmission using telecommunication network if it satisfies the optical portion of this standard. This standard describes RF transmission for broadcast and narrowcast (limited area distribution of broadcast) signals over FTTH, and introduces xPON system as a physical layer media. The detailed description of physical layer is out of the scope of this standard. The scope is limited to RF signal transmission over FTTH, thus, it does not include IP transport technologies, such as IP Multicast and associate protocols. Some interference descriptions between telecommunication system and broadcast system addressed in Clause 7 and Annex D should be referred to for detailed explanations. Annex A describes actual service systems with design consideration based on this standard. Annex B gives an overview of the optical transmission systems applicable for broadcast signal transmission.
