SCTE: The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers

SCTE, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers, is a nonprofit professional association dedicated to advancing the careers of cable telecommunications professionals and serving the industry through excellence in providing technical training, certification and standards. SCTE is the cable telecommunications organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) also recognizes SCTE, allowing SCTE standards to be referenced by the ITU. SCTE submits standards to the ITU through the U.S. Department of State and works in cooperation with the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). Standards from SCTE are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

ANSI/SCTE 174 2010

Radio Frequency over Glass Fiber-to-the-Home Specification

This document defines a fiber-to-the-home system optimized for compatibility with hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) plant, using the same end equipment at both the home and at the headend or hub. The RFoG system is defined to begin where the plant becomes passive, extending from that point to the home. This interface is referred to as the Optical Hub. There are many possible variations on the structure of the optical hub, depending on the needs of the system. The RFoG system is defined to terminate at the subscriber-side interface of an RFoG Optical Network Unit (R-ONU) at the home.
