The expansion of cable telecommunications into new markets has driven the number of technical papers to be presented at the SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo to 115.
Eighty-four organizations - representing cable operators, vendors and other organizations - authored 264 abstracts across a most-ever 11 categories. Selected submissions will be used to program the Fall Technical Forum - a joint production of the SCTE/ISBE, NCTA and CableLabs - as well as content in the Innovation Theater in the exhibit hall.
"As cable continues to expand the depth and breadth of its service offerings, the insights that are shared at SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo become increasingly more important," said Bill Warga, co-chairman of the Cable-Tec Expo 2019 Program Committee and vice president, Technology, for Liberty Global. Added Expo co-chairman and Charter Communications Executive Vice President, Field Operations, Tom Adams: "Our consistent ability to program upwards of 100 or more Fall Technical Forum presentations is among the reasons why Cable-Tec Expo is the leading technology event in our industry."
This year's technical tracks are: Wireline Access Network; Wireless Access Network; Converging Access Networks; Internet of Things; Business Services; Operational Transformation; Virtualization & Cloud; Security; AI, Machine Learning & Data Analytics; Innovation Across Technologies; and Video Services.
"More than ever this year, the program committee faced a significant challenge in selecting the 115 papers that make up this year's Fall Technical Forum," said Chris Bastian, senior vice president, Engineering, and CTO of the SCTE/ISBE. "We're grateful to all who volunteered to create the Fall Technical Forum, whether it was dedicating time to creating submissions or to those on the program committee who dedicated resources to reviewing the record 264 abstracts."
