Imagine the Possibilities…

The Fall Technical Forum Program Committee has assembled an exciting program, exploring artificial intelligence, operational transformation, advancements to cable’s 10G platform, lessons learned from COVID-19, and more.

2020 Program Chairs

Ed Marchetti, senior vice president of operations for Comcast, and Tom Monaghan, senior vice president, field operations for Charter Communications, co-chair the program committee for SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo® 2020.

Marchetti and Monaghan bring an enhanced operations focus to the event with the intent to help the industry “Imagine the Possibilities” in a world of ever-expanding technical opportunity, from today’s DOCSIS® networks to tomorrow’s 10G platform. Cable-Tec Expo 2020 is focused on 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.
