Green Pavilion, Next-Gen Video Architecture Pavilion on tap for Expo
For the third year, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers will host its Green Pavilion at its Cable-Tec Expo in November in Atlanta, as well as a new Next-Generation Video Architecture Pavilion.
The SCTE said the Green Pavilion would be expanded this year to include power availability – including disaster preparedness, network availability and business services availability – as well as other energy management topics, such as alternative and renewable powering, backup powering, power efficiency, power reduction, recycling and recovery, and travel reduction.
The Next-Generation Video Architecture Pavilion will give Expo attendees a detailed look at a content distribution network (CDN), including: ingestion of content, transcoding/transrating of content, distribution of content across a transport network or national backbone, and access to and entitlement of content both inside and outside the home – whether on a "smart device" or a home gateway.
The two pavilions will be located on the Cable-Tec Expo exhibit floor, which will be open Nov. 15-17. A pre-conference Capacity Management Symposium and selected Cable-Tec Expo workshops will be held on Nov. 14. Both events will be at the Georgia World Congress Center.
"With the rapid pace of change in cable technology, the educational components of SCTE Cable-Tec Expo are becoming more important than ever," said Terry Cordova, chairman of the program committee for Cable-Tec Expo and CTO of Suddenlink Communications. "Our Green and Next-Generation Video Architecture Pavilions this year will offer an unparalleled opportunity for us to expand the knowledge bases of the thousands of technologists, engineers and operations professionals who will attend Expo this year."
