EXTON, Pa. -- The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) today announced IPv6: Impact on Cable Networks (Facilitated), a seven-week online course on IPv6 as part of a comprehensive effort to prepare the cable industry for the transition to the next generation network layer Internet Protocol. The IPv6: Impact on Cable Networks course has been developed in partnership with Cisco Systems.

The course, which will provide an overview of the capabilities and roles of IPv6 and DOCSIS 3.0 in the cable network management process, has been designed to help cable engineers and technical professionals to understand the impact of IPv6, as well as the features and benefits that are expected to accompany the adoption of the protocol. The course is the cornerstone of a multi-faceted SCTE educational commitment that also includes Live Learning Archives, InfoScope® Papers and Presentations, and the first in a series of SCTE Primers.

The course will begin May 24. Registration through April 30 is $200 for SCTE members and $275 for non-members. After April 30, the registration fee will be $250 for members and $325 for non-members. Registration and additional links to SCTE IPv6 resources are available at http://www.scte.org/ipv6.

“IPv6 will play a critical role in cable’s ability to deploy the next generation of IP-based services,” said Marv Nelson, SVP Strategic Initiatives for SCTE. “We’ve created this course to provide the engineering community with the knowledge and skills that they’ll need to minimize the impact of the transition on cable operators’ businesses, and to make the change as seamless as possible for customers.”
