Weak Signal's description 
The aim of the REDESIGN project is to further evolve HFC network architectures and transmission technologies used in these networks by creating a smooth migration path towards future infrastructure concepts. A reliable and cost efficient broadband infrastructure is vital for the economy and society of the 21st century. Broadband access based on hybrid fibre-coax (HFC) networks stimulates the accretion of broadband markets and features strong service innovation. The further development of HFC architecture and transmission technologies is essential for maintaining the ability to meet the future requirements of broadband users and to remain competitive with alternative access technologies.
