The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers and its global brand, the International Society of Broadband Experts, have launched a call for papers for this year’s Cable-Tec Expo 2016, set for September 26-29 in Philadelphia.
The organization has set a deadline for abstract proposals of March 1. More information about the call for papers is available here.
This year, SCTE/ISBE said it’s looking for papers in areas spanning the deployment of DOCSIS 3.1; fiber-to-the-premises and fiber-deep architectures; intelligent energy management/energy innovations; home networking technology (including WiFi, Internet of Things and MoCA); infrastructure as a service IAAS; and proactive maintenance/advanced predictive alarming.
Other topics that will be given priority, including network virtualization (SDN/NFV); delivering video to consumer-owned and managed devices, commercial business services, all-IP service delivery, virtualized CPE for business and residential customers, and Ultra HD bandwidth and quality tradeoffs.
The Expo 2016 Program Committee, chaired by John Schanz, executive vice president and chief network officer of Comcast, will review all technical proposals, SCTE said.
