  History of the Atlantic Cable & Submarine Telegraphy - Commercial Pacific Cable Company
The landing of the cable at Ocean Beach, San Francisco, adjacent to the Cliff House, was apparently quite an event, with a large crowd, numerous dignitaries, and a brass band.
The work of hauling in the cable was done so expeditiously that the officials arrived on the beach only two minutes before the cable, which touched the beach and was christened at 9:55 A.M. While the cable was being spliced to the land end, Mayor Schmitz delivered a short speech, congratulating Mr.
Before the Pacific cable was laid in 1902 the only way to send a telegram from the west coast of America to China or Japan was across America, then to England, and then either via the Great Northern route through Russia or via the Eastern and Eastern Extension network to India and beyond.

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Coaxial cable is an electrical cable consisting of a round, insulated conducting wire surrounded by a round, conducting sheath, usually surrounded by a final insulating layer.
The cable is designed to carry a high-frequency or broadband signal, usually at radio frequencies.
Characteristic impedance in ohms (Ω), calculated from the ratio of the inner and outer diameters (ΓΈ), is independent from the frequency of the signal it carries; this enables it to be matched to the equipment at either end.

 Cable television - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Africa, cable TV has had little success, as it is not cost-effective to lay cables in sparsely populated areas, and although so-called "wireless cable" or microwave-based systems are used, "direct-to-home" satellite television is far more popular, especially in South Africa.
Technically, both cable TV and CATV involve distributing a number of television channels collected at a central location (called a headend) to subscribers within a community by means of a network of optical fibers and/or coaxial cables and broadband amplifiers.
Many cable television systems were formerly known as CATV (Community Antenna Television) systems as they were originally composed simply of a shared antenna located in a high location to which multiple households could have their TVs connected via coaxial cable.

 Cable modem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A cable modem is a unique type of modem that is designed to modulate a data signal over cable television infrastructure.
Cable modems are primarily used to deliver broadband Internet access, taking advantage of unused bandwidth on a cable television network.
The proliferation of cable modems, along with DSL technology, has ushered in the age of broadband Internet access in developed countries.

CABLE [cable] originally wire cordage of great strength or heavy metal chain used for hauling, towing, supporting the roadway of a suspension bridge, or securing a large ship to its anchor or mooring.
One type of electric cable consists of a core protected by twisted wire strands and suitably insulated, especially when it is used to cross oceans undersea; a message transmitted by cable is known as a cablegram or cable.
The coaxial cable, which is virtually immune to external interference, consists of two concentric conductors separated by an insulator; the current in the inner conductor draws the current in the outer conductor toward the center rather than letting it dissipate outwards.

CABLE does not directly support AI ‘strong agents’ (those with beliefs, desires and intentions), rather it is an enabling architecture for developing such agents.
CABLE was used to develop an agent-based data trader, able to locate the optimal source of data taking into account such factors as: requirements for data quality and granularity, network bandwidth and latency.
CABLE and the GRACE HCI Framework (FIONA) are being used to develop decision support tools for use in joint force operations in the United States.

 Howstuffworks "How Cable Television Works"
The earliest cable systems were, in effect, strategically placed antennas with very long cables connecting them to subscribers' television sets.
Because the signal from the antenna became weaker as it traveled through the length of cable, cable providers had to insert amplifiers at regular intervals to boost the strength of the signal and make it acceptable for viewing.
Cable got a reputation for not having the best quality picture and for not being reliable." In the late 1970s, cable television would find a solution to the amplifier problem.

 cable
Cable is the same dimension/design as the Ford Racing factory type cable (with the rubber grommet removed) mounted in a bracket that bolts to the flange where the cowl and firewall are welded together.
Typical routing is from firewall, cable goes past master cylinder, then down between the steering box and the shock tower (to rear of tower), then over towards the motor mount, then along the ol pan rail back to the bellhousing.
In order to make the cable clutch work with the original type bellhousing, you must install a cable type release arm and a new pivot bolt (fulcrum) in the bellhousing.

 What is cable modem? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
Because the coaxial cable used by cable TV provides much greater bandwidth than telephone lines, a cable modem can be used to achieve extremely fast access to the World Wide Web.
This, combined with the fact that millions of homes are already wired for cable TV, has made the cable modem something of a holy grail for Internet and cable TV companies.
In addition, it is still unknown whether the cable TV networks can handle the traffic that would ensue if millions of users began using the system for Internet access.

 Cybertelecom :: Cable
Because cable networks are shared by users, access speeds can decrease during peak usage hours, when bandwidth is being shared by many customers at the same time.
This rule prohibits a single cable company from serving more than 30% of the nation's multichannel video programming distribution subscribers, who are served primarily by cable television and direct broadcast satellite services.
This again raises the issue of whether cable that is used for Internet access is considered cable, telecom, or something other (this is at issue in the open access controversy).

 Can cable keep up without big infrastructure expenditures? - Engadget
The unsettling tension between cable, satellite, and now FTTH providers is growing ever tighter, and the delivery of HD channels, on-demand content, and internet services through aging coax pipelines is leaving little room for expansion.
While some analysts are suggesting that cable companies should be prepared to spend big bucks in order to maintain their current service levels -- especially considering the seemingly imminent additions of HD content and higher-high-speed internet services -- they may not have to bust out that checkbook so soon.
It's fairly obvious that cable companies still have a firm, albeit loosening, grip on the television market, and until this newfangled FTTH thing can reach a few more folks (or Google breaks out a dark-fiber solution of its own), it's cable or bust for most of us.
