New Tech in Cable SCTE EXPO 2017 recap

New Tech in Cable TV and Broadband plus SCTE EXPO 2017 Recap

Happy Monday Everyone.  Today is October 23rd and this is episode 32 of Get Your Tech On, our show on All Things DOCSIS.  I'm Brady Volpe, Founder of The Volpe Firm and Nimble This.   With us is, John Downey, the man who brought “the human gun show” to cable.   John is also CMTS Technical Leader at Cisco Systems, welcome John and Mia Colabrese a commoner among cable greats.

Today’s episode will cover the topic of what’s new and exciting at SCTE EXPO 2017 Recap.  So if you couldn’t attend let us give you the rundown of what we saw that peaked our interest.

John’s workshop was Tuesday at 3:15 pm and John shares some highlights. (Go HERE to download John's Expo Paper)

  • Hot topics talked about at SCTE 2017
  • VeEX announcement, ComSonics Pressure Test Field test, Great people of cable, SCTE
  • Brady's pick for best new Tech
    • One item interested me the most but I want to keep it under wraps.  We might do an episode on it separately later.  But other items that were interesting were Remote PHY demo’s in several booths.  Cisco, Harmonic, Arris and Vector all had interesting demo’s.
    • A true Full Duplex demo in Arris booth
    • CableLabs had some great demo’s as always
  • John’s pick for best new Tech
  • Other newsworthy events from SCTE

Let’s end with a Question:

I am wanting to advance my career in broadband technology. I am currently a plant maintenance tech for a large MSO but, I would like to get into the engineering side. What area(s) of study would be best? I am looking at B.S. degree.

For our many podcast listeners - and I know that is a majority of you - sometimes we display a lot of cool visuals on our show - so you may want to consider reviewing today’s show on our website at volpefirm.com or on our youtube channel.  Today's show was more of a discussion so listening is just fine too.
