SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo 2021 is scheduled to return as a live event, held Oct. 11 through 14 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.  Cable-Tec Expo is known across the cable industry and beyond as the preeminent venue for thought leadership, engineering innovation, and deal-making within the broadband telecommunications sector. The event brings together content and service providers, technology partners, industry experts and innovators at every level to learn, network and shape the future of connectivity.

Centered on the cable industry’s future, the event's organizers say October's Cable-Tec Expo 2021 in Atlanta 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 its call for papers issued today for Expo 2021’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 event's Fall Technical Forum. All abstracts must be submitted for consideration by April 9, 2021.

“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,” commented Mark Dzuban, president and CEO of SCTE•ISBE. "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. 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.”
