At SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2022 (Sep. 19-22), CableLabs announced the six winners of The 10G Challenge, a unique competition meant to inspire technology innovators to leverage the emerging 10G broadband network.

With the speed and security of 10G, the possibilities unlocked by the network of the future’s lower latencies, faster symmetrical speeds, improved reliability and enhanced security are seemingly endless,” said Phil McKinney, president and CEO of CableLabs. “Our team at CableLabs was excited by the incredible depth and breadth of innovative solutions submitted by individual entrepreneurs, innovators and organizations from across North America — and we look forward to empowering the winners to move their life-changing technologies forward.”

Created to support forward-thinkers developing transformative solutions that rely on the 10G broadband network of the near future, The 10G Challenge focused on encouraging innovation in four categories: Live, Work, Learn and Play. Participants submitted short videos demonstrating their technology or idea, and all submissions were reviewed by representatives from collaborator companies Corning, Intel, Mayo Clinic and Zoom to determine finalists in each category.

According to a press release, the award winners are as follows:

  • Grand Prize Winner: MediView leverages advanced virtual reality technology to help patients in rural areas access care from National Cancer Institute-designated cancer centers without having to leave their community.
  • Live Category Winner: Xennial Digital is creating the future of medical simulation training using the reliability of the 10G broadband network.
  • Work Category Winner: TractorCloud develops hardware and software solutions that save farmers thousands of dollars and drive the future of tractor fleet management.
  • Learn Category Winner: KC Digital Drive aims to utilize the 10G network to expand access to nursing education via digital twin classrooms.
  • Play Category Winner: Dana Leung's "Interacting Within Live-Action Video Scenes" technology hopes to enhance consumer experiences, whether shopping or watching movies, with real-time VR.
  • People’s Choice Winner: T4 Movement Engineering helps patients identify the root cause of their musculoskeletal issues and improve rehabilitation in an innovative, low-cost, easy-to-execute and scalable manner.

Each of the winners received a cash prize to further their project’s development, and the Grand Prize and four category winners presented their technologies and connected with leading industry professionals at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2022.

MediView was awarded the $100,000 grand prize to support the development of its technology; each category winner was honored with $50,000 to help move their project forward; and the T4 Movement Engineering project received $10,000 for its People’s Choice award.

“As technological advancements help providers deliver better access to care and ease the health care disparity gap among underserved or vulnerable populations, solutions that enable timely and appropriate access to health care services will only grow in importance,” commented John Black, co-founder of MediView. “At MediView, we were thrilled to learn we were receiving the Grand Prize because our technology will positively impact breast cancer research and treatment using the power of 10G — and this prize will help us move our innovation forward.”
