IP, IP, Ooray!

10:25 AM -- If there's still any question that IP technologies have risen to the top of cable's tech agenda, just look at the agenda being set for the next Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) Cable-Tec Expo, slated to run Oct. 20-22 in The Big Easy.

It'll be IP here, IP there, IP everywhere.

Carrying on a theme that emerged at last year's confab in Denver and has continued on with the recent hiring of the Society's new (and first) chief technology officer, the 2010 rendition of Expo has already fixed an outline of presentations and whitepaper topics that will center squarely on IP, including Docsis 3.0, home networking, video, and "holistic" content delivery networks that work with legacy cable boxes and a new breed of IP-capable gear.

Here's a sampling of the workshop lineup already locked in:

  • Holistic CDNs: Expanding the Library and Devices Served
  • IP Video Migration and Architecture
  • Taking Docsis 3.0 Back to the Future: Optimizing Whole-Home Networking and Migrating to Higher-Speed Upstream
  • Understanding, Installing, and Troubleshooting In-Home MoCA, WiFi, and IP Networks

Other specific coverage areas will include 3D video, service quality measurement and monitoring, adaptive streaming, Ethernet services, energy management, and BSS/OSS for business services.
