In a statement, Slaughter said: "There is a significant marketplace need for the learning and development solutions we provide MSOs, especially as homes and businesses become more connected with more devices, driving demand for bigger bandwidth and faster speeds. The industry is working to meet those demands with new technology and standards including DOCSIS 3.1. We are proud to train the front line to meet fast-changing technology demands."
Slaughter joined Jones International in 1996 and became CEO of Jones/NCTI in 2014. Jones/NCTI was founded in 1968 as the National Cable Television Institute. It was acquired by Glenn R. Jones and Jones International in 2005.
