SCTE•ISBE Seeks Future-Focused Thought Leaders For Cable-Tec Expo® 2021

When SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo®, the largest cable telecommunications and technology trade show in the Americas, returns to Atlanta in October the content will be centered on cable’s future. The event will be focused on how operational transformation will propel network performance, the promise of 10G to transform the lives of consumers, and emerging tools for the workplace of the future.

In the call for papers issued today for Expo’s Fall Technical Forum, SCTE•ISBE is seeking subject matter experts in ten key categories that explore new and emerging technologies as well as operational excellence. Categories include: operational transformation; internet of things, home networking, smart cities and emerging services; energy management and sustainability on the road to 10G; security and privacy; the workplace of the future; video services; and more. Kevin Hart, chief product and technology officer at Cox Communications, will act as show chairman and will review all technical abstracts for the Fall Technical Forum. All abstracts must be submitted for consideration by April 9, 2021. The complete call for papers can be found at

“Expo 2021 will showcase cable’s future and put a spotlight on the emerging technologies and operations that will underpin the continued transformation that is happening within the industry and beyond. Expo is a unique opportunity to bring together thought leaders from within and outside of cable to share pivotal knowledge that will change consumers’ lives,” said Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE•ISBE. “While last year’s virtual event was a huge success, we are eager to move forward with a hybrid approach for 2021, integrating the on-site experience with virtual elements from last year.”
