SCTE to Certify IP Pros

The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers introduced a certification program for cable professionals who maintain Internet-protocol networks.

The Internet Protocol Engineering Professional credential certifies a candidate’s knowledge of the engineering aspects of IP networks as deployed in cable environments. The certification includes theory, design, testing, deployment and operation of IP networks. Specific topics include standards and protocols, multimedia over IP and network-topology design.

IPEP is the second in a new line of SCTE engineering-level certification programs. The first, launched last year, was the Digital Video Engineering Professional program.
