New Orleans hosted the 2019 Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers SCTE, Cable-Tec Expo, the largest US-based event in cable and telecommunications. Hundreds of vendors and thousands of attendees gathered at the Crescent City between October 8th and the 11th to share the latest and greatest advances in Telecommunications and IoT technologies.
Mark Dzuban, President, and CEO of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE-ISBE) announced the Society’s commitment to make 10G a reality. The Society’s vision for 10G allows the industry to concentrate efforts on making HFC Networks among the fastest networks in broadband delivery. Healthcare, and education are predicted to be two of the industries to benefit most by 10G networks for the delivery of tele-health and virtual classroom environments, thereby eliminating the limitations of distance and travel, indeed making the virtual world, a reality.
Michael Shaw, CEO of Axiros North America, keynote speaker for Managing IoT Devices via USP, presented the benefits for cable operators in using the powerful yet light weight and agile Axiros AXACT DUAL agent, based on User Service Protocol, also known as TR-369, to provision and manage IoT devices and related services. The Axiros approach maintains the robust provisioning and device management features of TR-069, while adopting the lightweight messaging handling benefits of architectures such as that of MQTT. All of these features are packed together in modular architecture optimized for edge agile development which permit protocol proxies for protocol independence, multi-point to multi-point communications between edge-devices and user interfaces that allow countless deployment models for various business. Areas of key interest during the panel discussion involved WiFi management, security and managing proxied services.
Cable-Tec 2019’s vendor showcased new exiting devices for the customer premise for the delivery of data, voice, video and IoT. Likewise, many devices were showcased for smart cities where the end users are local city governments: Smart Street lights, Pollution Sensors, as well as Traffic & Parking Management, were some of the solutions showcased at the IoT Smart Cities pavilion aimed at running cities more efficiently.
