Jointly produced by SCTE/ISBE, NCTA and CableLabs, the Fall Technical Forum this year is focused on enabling 10G technologies, the cable industry initiative for which was announced in January.

The SCTE/ISBE is seeking proposals for technical papers and operational practices in the following 11 areas:

  • Wireline Access Network
  • Wireless Access Network
  • Converging Access Networks
  • Innovation Across Technologies
  • Internet of Things
  • Operational Transformation
  • Virtualization & Cloud
  • Security
  • Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning & Data Analytics
  • Business Services
  • Video Services

Submissions will be either technical papers, which describe new and emerging technologies, or operational practices, which provide field guidance. The Cable-Tec Expo 2019 Program Committee, co-chaired by Thomas E. Adams, EVP, Field Operations, Charter Communications and Bill Warga, VP, Technology, Liberty Global, will review all abstracts.

Expo 2019 is scheduled for Sept. 30-Oct. 3, in New Orleans.

"Cable system operators around the world face a universal challenge: the need to make sure their workforces are prepared for the new technologies that are on the horizon," said Mark Dzuban, president/CEO of the SCTE/ISBE.
