Calling it a “soup-to-nuts” exploration of wireless technologies, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) will host a first-ever Wireless Symposium on March 26 in Toronto, Ontario, just prior to the March 27-28 SCTE Canadian Summit 2012.
Both events will be held at the Toronto Congress Centre.
The Symposium will provide engineering and operations professionals with a view of the opportunities and challenges of wireless for the cable industry, beginning with a tutorial on wireless RF theory and system engineering. Subsequent presentations by subject-matter experts from the cable operator and vendor communities will address such issues as Wi-Fi, Long Term Evolution (LTE) and wireless backhaul, with a particular focus on the Canadian marketplace.
“Wi-Fi hotspots, Wi-Fi in the home, cellular backhaul and mobile services are universally recognized as areas that can drive future growth for the cable industry,” notes Daniel Howard, senior vice president/CTO at SCTE. “The Wireless Symposium has been created to accelerate the ability of cable operators in Canada, the United States and beyond to capitalize on these opportunities.”
