"Handling The Connected Home" is this year’s theme of the annual Cable Show Tech Breakfast, hosted by Communications Technology magazine, and sponsored by Alcatel-Lucent and Actiontec.

This free breakfast is slated for May 23 from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. in Room 205A at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, in conjunction with The Cable Show. ??Featured panelists to date include Neil Dholakia, CTO at Motive Customer Experience Solutions, Alcatel-Lucent; and Brian Henrichs, Chief Business Development Officer at Actiontec. The panel, moderated by Communications Technology Editor Debra Baker,  will address such topics as how to:
