Over the years, Hybrid Fiber-Coax (HFC) networks have continually evolved to push fiber deeper. RFoG can help providers expand their existing HFC networks with Fiber to the home (FTTH) networks and still use DOCSIS. Radio Frequency over Glass (RFoG) is a technology that supports the traditional RF infrastructure and can adapt itself to the point where it becomes a Fiber To The Home (FTTH) network. RFoG allows providers to stick to the well-known and popular DOCSIS broadcasting method while at the same time fiber can be used instead of coaxial cable.
