The organizations are working together to combine the best elements of both the Cable-Tec Expo papers and the NCTA technical papers within the SCTE/ISBE-NCTA Fall Technical Forum, continuing the collaborative relationship that existed during the Spring Technical Forum at the now-defunct INTX show in recent years. The Expo 2017 Program Committee will review abstracts for inclusion in the Oct. 17-20 event in Denver.

"We're delighted to be able to leverage our close relationships with NCTA and CableLabs to make the valuable insights of broadband telecommunications' most innovative minds available to full conference attendees."
"SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo historically has driven learning and development across every level of the cable workforce," said Dr. William Check, senior vice president and CTO of the NCTA. "The integration of the NCTA and SCTE/ISBE papers will bring to Expo an added dimension by harnessing the focus on new thinking that was a mainstay of our highly regarded Spring Technical Forum partnership."
