Looking ahead to SCTE-ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2017

The Tech It Out conference takes place Thursday, October 19th and raises awareness of leadership opportunities for women in cable technology.


SCTE•ISBE–NCTA Fall Technical Forum is stronger than ever with 98 presentations (up from 72 last year) over 45 workshops. The educational component for this year’s expo is the product of collaboration between SCTE•ISBE, NCTA, and CableLabs®, and is described as “a forum for thought leadership from a wide range of large and small international operators as well as a cross-section of technology partners that includes both traditional providers of cable products and services and industry newcomers.”

Fall Technical Forum workshops are organized into six tracks, addressing established and next-generation technologies:

  1. Evolved Network—Wireline and Wireless
  2. Cloud Virtualization
  3. Security and Authentication
  4. Business Services
  5. The Customer Journey
  6. Future Services and Technologies

Chris Bastian, senior vice president and CTO of SCTE•ISBE explains that  “the scope and direction of this inaugural Fall Technical Forum is designed to help operators, technology partners, and the cable workforce as a whole to achieve real, measurable success.”
