The article focuses on the emergence of hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) technology due to the increasing need for bandwidth and lowering cost of optical networking technology. It categorizes options in extending the HFC networks such as Fiber Deep, and radio frequency over glass (RFoG), and passive optical networks. According to an analysis, Fiber Deep is a less expensive option while RFoG is more cost-effective in rural service areas.
