10G Takes Center Stage at SCTE•ISBE Cable Tec-Expo

SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo is where broadband industry leaders convene to discuss the latest innovations each year. Just last year, this is where the first hints of the 10G initiative were dropped. At this year’s event, 10G will take center stage, offering attendees the opportunity to learn more about the industry’s path to 10G.

First up, “Mission 10G: Implementing Forward Looking Capabilities In Your Network” takes place on Monday, Sept. 30 and will provide an overview of 10G, including its benefits, how it fits into the 5G space and the ways technologies operators will use to get to 10G. This four-hour session will feature speakers from CableLabs, Charter Communications, Cisco, Comcast, CommScope, Cox, Harmonic, Intel, MidCo, Nokia, Vecima Networks and SCTE ISBE.

On Tuesday, Oct. 1, the opening general session will explore political, technical, customer and futuristic facets of 10G, with commentary from several executives including CableLabs’ Phil McKinney and NCTA’s Michael Powell in conversation with industry reporter Jeff Baumgartner. Later in the day, experts from Comcast, CableLabs and NCTA will discuss 10G on the Innovation Stage, sharing the latest on 10G and providing a look at the technologies bringing this vision to life.

On Thursday, Oct. 3, the ISBE/ANGA International Breakfast will discuss the global impact of 10G on plant modernization and new service delivery. And finally, throughout the conference, several workshops will provide an in-depth look into 10G-related network components, including physical layer modifications, distributed access architectures, traffic engineering and potential synergies between 10G and wireless 5G.

We’re looking forward to diving deeper into how the industry is working together to bring 10G to life this year at the SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo, and hope to see you there!
