CableNET '02 Features 60 Demonstrations Of the Latest in Broadband Applications

10/17/2002 - CableNET®, the broadband industry’s premiere technology showcase, has announced its list of about 60 broadband demonstrations in this year’s exhibit, including 14 in its interactive centerpiece. The exhibit is part of the BroadbandPlus (The New Western Show) at the Anaheim Convention Center December 3-6.

Now in its 10th year, CableNET magnifies the true value of broadband services by once again offering a hands-on experience with many of the most exciting interactive services now available.

The theme of this year’s original CableNET exhibit is Turn on the Future, and it will include displays of true broadband services and examples of how the evolving broadband technology has expanded to include more business-to-business solutions that keep cable services innovative and competitive. The entire CableNET® ’02 exhibit will cover about 10,000 square feet on the Anaheim Convention Center show floor.

"This year’s 10th anniversary of CableNET continues the tradition of having a powerful demonstration of cable’s broadband might as a highlight of the industry’s top technology show, whether it is called The Western Show or BroadbandPlus," said Dr. Richard R. Green, CableLabs President and CEO.

The CableNET exhibits are co-sponsored by the California Cable & Telecommunications Association (CCTA) and Cable Television Laboratories (CableLabs®) as educational forums. They demonstrate the potential of the cable industry’s hybrid fiber/coaxial systems, and the expanding number of video, telecommunications, and entertainment applications such systems will deliver to cable customers.

"We are so glad to have CableNET back for its tenth year," said Spencer Kaitz, president, CCTA. "It’s an important forum that has launched companies, careers and products over the past decade. I am looking forward with great anticipation to seeing what new products and services this years’ participants in CableNET are bringing to our industry."

CableLabs manages key cable industry research and development projects - such as OpenCableTM, PacketCableTM, CableHomeTM, Go2BroadbandSM, and Data over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSISTM) - that seek to assure interoperability with future telecommunications technologies and services. Cablelabs, for the first time during Wave 24, which began on October 7, now has accepted new product for evaluation from CableHome, Packet Cable, and DOCSIS 2.0 vendors.

CableLabs manages these interoperability projects on behalf of its members, who are cable television system operators based in North and South America. CableLabs has undertaken these interoperability projects as a collective effort with its members and with participating vendors, many of whom will be featured at CableNET® ’02. Because of its key position in these projects, CableLabs serves as a focal point for the convergence of the cable, computer, consumer electronics, and broadcast industries.
