At ANGA COM in Cologne, Germany, the SCTE's global arm, the ISBE, will participate in three panels - on DOCSIS 3.1, on 10G and on cybersecurity - and will host a DOCSIS 3.1 Speed Boot Camp that is free to all registered ANGA COM attendees. In addition, the Society and ISBE have teamed with CableLabs to author a white paper on cybersecurity. The ISBE also will discuss its learning and development curricula, its ANSI-accredited standards group and other programs on the ANGA COM show floor.
The ISBE's focus at ANGA will include:
- 10 Gigabit and Beyond: Powering the Future of Cable, moderated by SCTE/ISBE President and CEO Mark Dzuban, will feature Liberty Global's Bill Warga, Vodafone's Frank Hellemink, CableLabs' Chris Lammers, Cisco's John T. Chapman and Intel's Robert Ferreira.
- DOCSIS 3.1: Best Practices from the Field, will be moderated by Dzuban with Nokia's Mike Gannon, DKT's Dr. Anders Moller-Larsen, Casa Systems' Jeff Leung and AVM's Tim Kroll.
- Cybersecurity and Safety: Prepare your Network and Protect your Customer, will feature ISBE Executive Director, Technical Sales, Learning & Development Steve Harris along with Nokia Deepfield's Roland Thienpont, Eurofins Digital Testing Cyber Security Division's Marcel Mangel, Synamedia's Orly Amsalem, and moderator Dominick Roske from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
- Leveraging DOCSIS 3.1 to Maximize Network Security, an ISBE/ANGA COM speed boot camp led by Harris and Dr. Alexander Adams of Adams Network Engineering, will discuss how RSA 2048-bit encryption and other security specifications within DOCSIS 3.1 can help cable counter the rise of cyberthreats. The boot camp is free to all registered ANGA COM attendees.
In addition to the panels and the boot camp, the Society's ISBE presence will include "A Future Worth Protecting," a downloadable white paper on cybersecurity co-authored by Harris and CableLabs' Steve Goeringer, as well as a presence with the ISBE Central Europe Chapter in the Adams Consult stand on the show floor.
"The technologies on the roadmap today will underpin ROI for the industry now and in the future," said Dzuban. "Our partnership with ANGA COM and the agenda for SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo this fall in New Orleans are intended to provide the knowledge needed to accelerate deployment of robust, secure next-generation services that will power cable's long-term success."
