Shenandoah Telecommunication announced earlier this month that it has joined a growing list of MSOs that have joined the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers Corporate Alliance Program, an initiative that offers new training and education and programs, and one that aims to expand the SCTE’s base of individual members.
“Shentel employee membership and participation in SCTE has always been strong,” said Tom Whitaker, VP of Shentel Cable, in a statement. “SCTE represents the gold standard in technology training for our industry. Working with SCTE to provide our technicians with the most current training and certifications ensures our customers the best possible service experience.”
The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers has added three cable operators -- Cablevision Systems, Charter Communications and Cox Communications -- to its recently announced Corporate Alliance Program.
The SCTE announced the CAP in April, with Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Suddenlink Communications on board as charter members. Cablevision Systems, Liberty Global, Charter Communications and Cox Communications have also joined.
Alpha Technologies and Arris Group are in as “beta vendor partners,” and will help the organization develop a full vendor program that’s expected to launch sometime in 2015.
“We look forward to Shentel’s input as a Corporate Alliance Program member as we continue to shape SCTE training and certifications to meet the needs of our rapidly evolving industry,” said Lindsay Johnston, SVP of operations at SCTE.
