Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Unwanted electrical waves getting into the CATV network is known as 

    Explanation
    Unwanted electrical waves that enter the CATV network are referred to as "ingress." Ingress is a common issue in cable television systems where external signals, such as radio frequency interference, leak into the network and disrupt the desired signals. This interference can cause picture distortion, poor sound quality, and overall degradation of the cable TV service. To mitigate ingress, cable operators employ various techniques like proper shielding, signal amplification, and regular maintenance of the network infrastructure.

  • 2. 

    Unwanted electrical noise in the network will cause the SNR to decrease

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Unwanted electrical noise in the network refers to any interference or disturbance in the electrical signals being transmitted. This noise can disrupt the clarity and strength of the signal, leading to a decrease in the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR). SNR is a measure of the strength of the desired signal compared to the background noise. Therefore, it is logical to conclude that unwanted electrical noise in the network will indeed cause the SNR to decrease.

    All unterminated/open ports must be terminated using a (Fill in the blank) Ohm termination cap

    Correct Answer
    75
    Explanation
    All unterminated/open ports must be terminated using a 75 Ohm termination cap. This is because a termination cap matches the impedance of the transmission line, preventing signal reflections and ensuring proper signal transmission. In this case, a 75 Ohm termination cap is required to match the impedance of the transmission line and effectively terminate the open ports.

    Scratching and scoring of the central conductor (Stinger) is most likely to affect what type of frequency?

    Correct Answer
    High Frequencies
    High
    high
    high frequencies
    Explanation
    As high frequencies tend to travel toward the out side of the conductor (in this case the copper coating) -this is known as the skin effect - any damage to this will have an affect on the high end. The deeper the cut/scoring damage is the more problems it causes and the more of the frequency range is impacted.

    Leaving an air gap in a connection  such as that created by a short stinger will create a resistance change resulting in

    • A.

      Higher resistance

    • B.

      Lower resistance

    • C.

      Stays the same

    Correct Answer
    A. Higher resistance
    Explanation
    Leaving an air gap in a connection, such as that created by a short stinger, will create a higher resistance. This is because air is a poor conductor of electricity compared to a solid conductor. When there is an air gap in the connection, the flow of electricity is hindered, leading to an increase in resistance. As a result, the resistance in the circuit will be higher than if the connection was solid and uninterrupted.

    F. Increase in upstream power level
    H. Loss of data
    I. Blocking and freezing
    J. Slow internet speeds
    K. Eventual loss of interactive
    L. Eventual total loss of CATV services
    Explanation
    Ingress noise refers to unwanted signals that enter the CATV network from external sources. When there is ingress noise, several negative effects can occur. Decreasing of the SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) happens because the noise level increases while the signal power remains the same, resulting in a weaker signal relative to the noise. Rise in the noise floor refers to an overall increase in the background noise level, which can degrade the quality of the signal. Reduction in signal power occurs because the noise interferes with the signal transmission. Increase in upstream power level is needed to compensate for the added noise. Loss of data, blocking and freezing, slow internet speeds, eventual loss of interactive features, and eventual total loss of CATV services can all occur due to the negative impact of the ingress noise on the network.
