Russian term or phrase: оптикокоаксиальный кабель
My understanding is that optical and coaxial cable are two different things. But is there a cable TV system that uses both together? This term popped up as part of a list of formats for delivery of TV content. As such, context is scampy:

Кабель, технология DOCSIS (версия 2.0), оптикокоаксиальный кабель

From a Yandex search, looked like it should be оптико-коаксиальный кабель but still, conceptually, seems fishy.
