Title: Method and apparatus for coaxial cable based broadcast and communication convergence in home network

Abstract: Disclosed are a method and an apparatus for a coaxial cable based broadcast and communication convergence in a home network for supporting a frequency band less than a frequency band used in Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA). The apparatus for broadcast and communication convergence includes a broadcast processor that transmits and receives broadcast signals from an external broadcasting network; a communication processor that transmits and receives communication signals from an external communication network; and a broadcast and communication converging unit that is operated as a terminal for the broadcast signals input to the broadcast processor and the communication signals input to the communication processor, and divides an occupied frequency band of the broadcast signals from a remaining frequency band, and uses the remaining frequency band as a channel for the communication signals.
