The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers’ (SCTE) Sustainability Management Subcommittee (SMS) will unveil drafts of its first two standards at its September meeting in Dallas. SMS members will review and discuss SMS 001, which has been proposed as the standard for “Recommended Energy Conservation, Sustainability and Efficiency Practices for Critical Systems,” and SMS 002, the proposed standards document for “Product Environmental Requirements for Cable Telecommunications Facilities” that addresses such considerations as temperature, humidity, electromagnetic interference and environmental design.

Held immediately after SCTE’s September 14 semi-annual Smart Energy Management Initiative (SEMI) forum, the SMS meeting will enable subcommittee members to play active roles in shaping standards that will help to reduce the cost and environmental impact of cable network operations and service delivery.  In addition, attendees are expected to address the creation of standards for power availability of hardware that comes to market in 2013 and beyond.
