The American National Standards Institute has approved three SCTE standards, one on BER testing and two on F-connectors.

ANSI/SCTE 121 2011, Test Method for Downstream Bit Error Rate, defines a test to measure bit error rate (BER) of downstream QAM signals. It addresses mainly pre-FEC BER results for 64- and 256-QAM.

ANSI/SCTE 123 2011, Specification for "F" Connector, Male, Feed-Through, applies to SCTE drop cable specifications ANSI/SCTE 74 2003, ANSI/SCTE 71 2003, ANSI/SCTE 100 2004, IPS SP 005 and IPS SP 006.

ANSI/SCTE 124 2011, Specification for "F" Connector, Male, Pin Type, applies to SCTE drop cable specifications ANSI/SCTE 74 2003, ANSI/SCTE 71 2003, ANSI/SCTE 100 2004, IPS SP 005 and IPS SP 006.
