EXTON, Pa. -- The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) today announced the addition of three new cable operator partners – Cablevision Systems Corp. (NYSE: CVC), Charter Communications (NASDAQ: CHTR) and Cox Communications -- to the SCTE Corporate Alliance Program.
The three new members bring the number of operator partners in the program to six. The Corporate Alliance Program launched earlier this year with Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Suddenlink as members. Alpha Technologies and ARRIS Group Inc. have signed on as beta vendor partners and will assist SCTE in developing a full vendor program to launch in 2015.
The Corporate Alliance Program enables operators and vendors of all sizes jointly to address industry issues, develop solutions and prepare for emerging technologies, and to dramatically expand access to training and education available through SCTE or its chapters.
Conceived as a true strategic partnership between corporate members and SCTE, the Corporate Alliance Program includes a wide variety of opportunities for all constituencies to influence the training roadmap from the executive to the field level, and to leverage the work of other Corporate Alliance partners. The program and entry fees have been structured to ensure that members of all sizes have an opportunity to get maximum value from participation.
