Abstract:

The Multimode Information Distribution System MIDS is an advanced, local area communication system capable of simultaneously handling audio, video, and digital data traffic for a large number of subscribers. The MIDS configuration utilizes a broadband coaxial cable transmission medium such as that used by the CATV industry. The prototype MIDS serves to demonstrate proof of concepts for flag-for-service signaling and supervision as well as an adaptive data rate transmission scheme.
