The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE), a subsidiary of Cable Labs, today opened its call for papers for Cable-Tec Expo 2022, to be held September 19-22 as a hybrid live-virtual event in Philadelphia, PA.
This year’s Cable-Tec Expo wil be chaired by Comcast Cable president and CEO David Watson and Liberty Global vice-chairman and CEO Michael Fries. The theme for this year’s event is: "Creating Infinite Possibilities.”
"Expo 2022 will preview the emerging technologies and applications transforming the industry and reveal what’s next in the evolution of broadband,” said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE. "While we’ve hosted very successful virtual events the last two years, we are eager to get back together in-person as an industry and move forward with a hybrid approach for 2022, combining the best elements of an on-site experience with compelling streaming content for those attending virtually from all over the world."
In the call for papers that was issued for the event's annual Fall Technical Forum, SCTE is seeking subject matter experts in 13 key categories that explore forward-looking technologies and solutions to help power the industry’s 10G platform and move its technical foundation forward.
