The SCTE/ISBE says it has received 260 technical abstracts for Cable-Tec Expo tech sessions for the second straight year.

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.
