This paper describes a small trial of an advanced cable TV network with evolutionary potential for the wideband local network of the future. Major features of the trial are optical fiber transmission throughout, switched program provision, and a star type of network. Initial experience is related giving both successes and difficulties encountered on design and installation phases. The conclusions point out the technology gap that exists for the wideband local network application and emphasize the potential of the network type used for enhanced services to the customer.
