If a video signal contains a bandwidth of 3 MHz, audio signal contains bandwidth of 4 MHz and a color signal contains a bandwidth of 5 MHz, how can these signals transfer through a coaxial cable that has a bandwidth of 6 MHz?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The cable rating is the maximum signal. So a 6 MHz cable can carry anything up to 6 MHz and anything as low as 1 MHz.

    The data streams are sent using packets. So each data packet is prepared and sent, alternating, with the other streams, giving the impression that the streams are continuous. The actual bandwidth of the cable is used to its limits by the routers. Of course, there may be a trade off in quality of the streams, due to dropped packets, if using to many high bandwidth streams down the 1 cable. Load planning is needed to maintain the high quality of the output.
