The US-based Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) is set to detail new European initiatives and training opportunities at ANGA COM.
The non-profit professional association will outline the schemes, which include training opportunities for professionals in European cable engineering and operations, at a breakfast event on Wednesday, May 21 at ANGA COM.
SCTE’s president and CEO, Mark Dzuban, will speak at the event, alongside: SCTE’s CTO and senior vice president of engineering, Daniel Howard; the president of SCTE’s central Europe chapter and CEO of Adams Consult, Claus Adams; and the principal analyst of CableLabs’ advanced technology group, L. Alberto Campos.
“The rapid evolution of cable telecommunications products and services has increased the need for superior workforce training and certification. SCTE’s alignment with CableLabs, the international cable operator community, and international standards bodies have positioned it to deliver educational resources that are without equal in our industry,” said Adams.
The international breakfast event will include a general overview of SCTE’s activities, details of its initiatives in Europe and its training courses and information on advanced engineering training and proactive network maintenance.
SCTE is designed to provide technical leadership for the telecoms industry, offering professional development, standards, certification and information. SCTE currently claims nearly 14,000 members from the US and 70 countries worldwide, and more than 3,000 employees of the cable teleco industry hold SCTE technical certifications.
