Broad-band networks present many advantages for the implemention of data transmission circuits. Whereas communication system concepts are universally applicable, there are many unique details and practial considerations involved in design and operation of broad-band networks. This paper describes broad-band configurations and their system design implications and includes a discussion of current modem designs, spectral occupancy, and modulation characteristics configurations and protocols, interference, and error control, as well as broad-band network control and maintenance. In addition, a data transmission network addressing many of the basic factors and providing multiple services is described.
