SCTE to Top-line 2019 Cable-Tec Expo with 10G, Smart Cities, DAA

The SCTE said smart cities, so-called “10G” cable network technologies and new network alignments like Distributed Access Architecture will top-line its 2019 Cable-Tec Expo conference.

Now the premiere cable industry business conference, Cable-Tec Expo is set for Sept. 30 - Oct. 3 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

Session highlights at this year’s show, according to an announcement put out today by the Society of Cable Technology Engineers, include “Mission 10G: Implementing Forward Looking Capabilities in Your Network.” Here, representatives from CableLabs, operators and vendors discuss the roadmap to deploying cable network technologies, including Full Duplex DOCSIS, that will ultimately enable 10G services.

The session is being jointly organized by SCTE, CableLabs, NCTA—the groups that launched the “10G” marketing campaign at CES earlier this year. Sponsors include CommScope, Harmonic, Intel and Vecima Networks.

Meanwhile, smart cities events will include a series of presentation on “Smart Cities Day,” October 3. These presentations at the Innovation Theater stage on the show floor will attempt to highlight how municipalities can harness the power of 10G technologies to drive economic opportunities. The event is sponsored by Charter Communications and Liberty Global, with Comcast and Cox Communications also contributing exhibits.

Discounted early-bird registration is available for Cable-Tec Expo.
