IEC 60728-113:2018 is applicable to optical transmission systems for broadcast signal transmission that consist of headend equipment, optical transmission lines, in-house wirings and system outlets. These systems are primarily intended for television and sound signals using digital transmission technology. This document specifies the basic system parameters and methods of measurement for optical distribution systems between headend equipment and system outlets in order to assess the system performance and its performance limits. In this document, the upper signal frequency is limited at about 1 000 MHz. For systems requiring more bandwidth, refer to IEC 60728-13-1. The purpose of this part of IEC 60728 is to describe the system specifications of FTTH (fibre to the home) networks for digitally modulated broadcast signal transmission. This document is also applicable to broadcast signal transmission using a telecommunication network if it satisfies the optical portion of this document. This document describes RF transmission for fully digitalized broadcast and narrowcast (limited area distribution of broadcast) signals over FTTH, and introduces xPON system as a physical layer media. The detailed description of the physical layer is out of the scope of this document. 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 the telecommunication system and the broadcast system are addressed in Clause 7.

The Technical Reports describes the interference situation which may occur when besides the wanted broadcast signals of DVB-T/-T2 formats also signals from base stations of mobile radio services (unwanted signals) are received by the same terrestrial broadcast antenna and by an active equipment (amplifier) directly connected to the antenna output. The TR relates in a first step to the special frequency neighbourhood situation between DVB-T signals up to 790 MHz (channel 60) and LTE base station signals starting at 791 MHz. This neighbourhood situation is currently already in operation in many European countries. The TR proposes different measures by which such interference situations can be reduced to an acceptable level or can even be completely avoided. Measures are described for application in already installed networks and also in new networks to be installed in the future.

This European Standard describes the SAT>IP communication protocol. It enables a SAT>IP server to forward satellite delivered signals to SAT>IP clients over IP networks. The typical use case would be the transport of television programs that were received from the satellite by the SAT>IP server to the SAT>IP client via the IP network. SAT>IP specifies a control protocol as well as the media transport (Figure 1). SAT>IP is not a device specification. The SAT>IP protocol distinguishes between SAT>IP clients and SAT>IP servers. SAT>IP Clients SAT>IP clients may reside in set-top boxes equipped with an IP interface or may be implemented as software applications running on programmable hardware such as Tablets, PCs, Smartphones, Connected Televisions. SAT>IP Servers SAT>IP servers may take various forms ranging from large MDU headends servicing whole buildings or communities to in-home IP multiswitches to simple IP adapters for a set-top box to, ultimately, IP LNBs. Actual devices may be clients or servers or both depending on their feature set.

These signals are typically transmitted in networks by frequency-multiplexing techniques. This includes for instance  regional and local broadband cable networks,  extended satellite and terrestrial television distribution systems,  individual satellite and terrestrial television receiving systems, and all kinds of equipment, systems and installations used in such cable networks, distribution and receiving systems. The extent of this standardization work is from the antennas and/or special signal source inputs to the headend or other interface points to the network up to the terminal input of the customer premises equipment. The standardization work will consider coexistence with users of the RF spectrum in wired and wireless transmission systems. The standardization of any user terminals (i.e. tuners, receivers, decoders, multimedia terminals etc.) as well as of any coaxial, balanced and optical cables and accessories thereof is excluded. 1.2 Specific scope of EN 50083 8 This European Standard applies to the radiation characteristics and immunity to electromagnetic disturbance of cable networks for television signals, sound signals and interactive services and covers the frequency range 0,15 MHz to 3,5 GHz. It should be noted that measurements below 30 MHz are not generally considered useful in the context of cable networks and are difficult to perform in practice. Application of the harmonized standard EN 50529-2 provides presumption of conformance to the EMC Directive. Therefore, to fulfil the requirements of EN 50529-2, it is necessary to use cable network equipment that satisfies the requirements of EN 50083-2 regarding limits of radiation and of immunity to external fields. This European Standard specifies methods of measurement and EMC performance requirements under operating conditions (in situ) to ensure the ongoing EMC integrity of cable networks. Cable networks beyond the system outlets (e.g. the receiver lead, in simplest terms) which begin at the system outlet and end at the input to the subscriber's terminal equipment are not covered by the standard EN 50083 8. Requirements for the electromagnetic compatibility of receiver leads are laid down in EN 60966 2 4, EN 60966 2 5 and EN 60966 2 6. Cable networks and a wide range of radio services have to coexist. These include for example the emergency services, safety of life, broadcasting, aeronautical, radio navigation services and also land mobile, amateur and cellular radio services. Frequency ranges of typical safety of life services are listed in Annex B. Additional protection for certain services may be required by national regulations.

1.1 General Standards of the EN 50083 series deal with cabled distribution systemsnetworks for television signals, sound signals and interactive multimedia signalsservices including equipment, systems and installations • - for headend -reception, processing and distribution of television and sound and television signals and their associated data signals and • - for processing, interfacing and transmitting all kinds of signals for interactive multimedia signalsservices using all applicable transmission media. They cover aAll kinds of systemsnetworks like • - CATV-systemsnetworks, • - MATV-networks and SMATV-systemsnetworks, • - iIndividual receiving systemsnetworks and all kinds of equipment, systems and installations installed in such systemsnetworks, are within this scope. The extent of theseis standardsization work is from the antennas, special signal source inputs to the headend or other interface points to the systemnetwork up to the system outlet or the terminal input, where no system outlet exists. The standardization of any user terminals (i.e. tuners, receivers, decoders, multimedia terminals etc.) as well as of any coaxial and optical cables and accessories therefor is excluded. 1.2 Specific scope of this part 9 This standard describes physical interfaces for the interconnection of signal processing devices for professional CATV/SMATV headend equipment or for similar systems, such as in uplink stations. Especially this document specifies the transfer of DVB/MPEG-2 data signals in the standardized transport layer format between devices of different signal processing functions. RF interfaces and interfaces to telecom networks are not covered in this document. In addition references are made to all other parts of EN 50083 series (Cabled distribution networks systems for television signals, and sound signals and interactive services) and in particular for RF, video and audio interfaces to part 5: "Headend equipment“. For connections to telecom networks a special Data Communication Equipment (DCE) is necessary to adapt the serial or parallel interfaces specified in this document to the bitrates and transmission formats of the public Plesiochronic Digital Hierarchy (PDH) networks. Other emerging technologies such as Connectionless Broadband Data Services (CBDS), Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH), Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) etc. can be used for transmitting MPEG-2 Transport Streams (TS) between remote locations. ATM is particularly suitable for providing bandwidth on demand and it allows for high data rates.

This part of IEC 60728 is applicable to in-building optical transmission systems for broadcast signal transmission that consist of optical transmitter, optical amplifiers, splitters, V-ONUs, etc. These systems are primarily intended for television and sound signals using digital transmission technology. This document specifies the basic system parameters and methods of measurement for in-building optical distribution systems between building network interface (BNI) and home network interface (HNI) in order to assess the system performance and its performance limits. This document is also applicable to broadcast signal transmission using a telecommunication network if it satisfies the requirements of optical section of this document. This document describes RF transmission for fully digitalized broadcast and narrowcast (limited area distribution of broadcast) signals over an FTTH network and introduces xPON system as a physical layer media. The detailed description of the physical layer is out of the scope of this document. The scope is limited to RF signal transmission over optical network, thus, it does not include IP transport technologies, such as IP Multicast and associate protocols. This standard specifies the required system performance of all-optical building networks in order to connect with FTTH networks which are defined by IEC60728-113 and IEC60728-13-1. Use of In-building optical networks is very effective for saving cost (installation and maintenance) and enabling future network up-grades, especially in huge apartment buildings. In this document, the optical wavelengths and electrical frequency bands listed in Table 1 - and Table 2 - are considered to be used. [Table 1 and Table 2]

This Technical Specification is applicable to the method of non-linearity measurement for active cable network equipment which carry a digital channel load in the return path. The digital channel load is represented by standard DVB-C signals. The method of measurement of the maximum operating output level takes account of a full channel load in the return path frequency range although different applications of return path amplifiers with partial channel load or single channel load are also in practical use. The maximum operating output level for applications with reduced channel loads could be derived from the result with a full channel load by applying a given calculation formula. The method considers the specific signal form and behaviour of digitally modulated signals and can be applied in the return path frequency range (5 MHz to 65 MHz) as well as in the extended return path frequency range (5 MHz to 85 MHz) according to EN 60728-10.

This Technical Specification describes:  the system physical structure;  the system control signals, which implement a set of messages using DiSEqC physical layer but not the DiSEqC message structure;  the definition of identified configurations;  the management of the potential collisions in the control signals traffic. Figure 1 illustrates the physical system configuration considered in this Technical Specification. Several satellite signal demodulators can receive signals from any of the input signal banks (Bank 1, Bank 2,  Bank M, with M  256) of the LNB or the switch. The signals selected by the demodulators (or receivers) are transported via a single cable to these demodulators (Receiver 1, Receiver 2,  Receiver N, with N  32). To achieve these single cable distributions, the Single Cable Interface (SCIF, likely embedded in a LNB or a Switch) features some specific functions and characteristics.

IEC 60728-1-1:2010(E) provides the requirements and describes the implementation guidelines of RF cabling for two-way home networks; it is applicable to any home network that distributes signals provided by CATV/MATV/SMATV cable networks (including individual receiving systems) having a coaxial cable output. It is also applicable to home networks where some part of the distribution network uses wireless links, for example in place of the receiver cord. It is therefore applicable to RF cabling for two-way home networks with wired cords or wireless links inside a room and primarily intended for television and sound signals operating between about 5 MHz and 3 000 MHz. The frequency range is extended to 6 000 MHz for distribution techniques that replace wired cords with a wireless two-way communication inside a room (or a small number of adjacent rooms) that uses the 5 GHz to 6 GHz band.
