Speaking opportunity: In order to help expand the skill sets that will be required to bridge traditional and next generation technologies, SCTE ISBE Cable-Tec Expo wants its agenda to “address the needs of the networks of the future — increased speed, agility, service availability and reliability — as well as the workforce transformation required to drive satisfaction for a new breed of customer and ROI for the industry.” The organizers want to give potential speakers additional time to plan their topic submissions so they have extended the CFP deadline. They have also added a new track on Lessons Learned from COVID-19 Pandemic. If you have a topic that fits within one of their 14 tracks, submit it by the 8 May deadline.
