local cable systems connected together (by wire or microwave) in order to telecast shared commercials or programs simultaneously.
A cable that carries line-level audio signals.
Two or more cable systems distributing a commercial signal simultaneously, primarily to maximize the effectiveness of an advertising schedule by offering a multiple system buy in which only one contract need be negotiated. Interconnects can be hard, where systems are directly linked by cable, microwave relays or by satellite, and the signal is fed to the entire interconnect by one headend; or soft, where there is no direct operational connection between the participating systems but the same commercial is run simultaneously by each of the systems.
Provides for the direct connection of individual cables to another cable or to an equipment cable without a patch cord.

are the specialized, high-precision optical and electrical cable and harness assemblies and connectors utilized in the interconnection of electrical components and assemblies. Various interconnect technologies include single-mode and multi-mode cyber optics, coaxial, ribbon cable, shielded and tight pair, tight twisted pairs, patch cords and molded cables.
3/4– Several cable systems joined together in a specific area for purpose of selling advertising; also called cable interconnects or regional interconnects.
