SOURCE Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE)
Innovation Leader to Participate in Development of Energy Standards for Cable Industry
EXTON, Pa., Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) today announced that Intel Corporation has joined the SCTE Standards Program and will be actively involved in the development of new energy and operations standards and recommended practices for the cable telecommunications industry.
As an SCTE standards member, Intel will be positioned to provide support for the creation and implementation of specifications for increased energy efficiency within cable networks and operational facilities. Working with cable system operator and vendor members of the SCTE Standards Program's Sustainability Management Subcommittee (SMS), Intel will help to shape solutions that will reduce energy consumption and costs, increase service availability, extend equipment service life and optimize the use of available power.
Intel is expected to be involved in work on a variety of standards currently under development, including an Adaptive Power System Interface Specification (APSIS™) that will provide for an end-to-end energy control system for network operators, as well as standards for benchmarking of energy and density in hardware and predictive alarming that can identify and prevent impending failure of hardware and associated systems.
"The same types of Moore's Law and Koomey's Law efficiencies that have increased performance and battery life in the mobile and computing industries are possible in cable," said Marty Davidson, vice president, engineering and network operations for SCTE and head of the SCTE Standards Program. "As operators increasingly deploy enterprise-class, off-the-shelf network appliances within their networks, the contributions of silicon vendors will be increasingly important. We look forward to working with Intel on the creation of the standards that will ensure the universal, reliable and efficient delivery of cable services in the future."
"Through its standards program and its SCTE Energy Management Program, SCTE has taken a leading role in bringing the benefits of energy standards and best practices to cable," said Ran Senderovitz, general manager for Intel's Service Provider Division. "By working together directly with the industry, we can help shape a new generation of intelligent network equipment that can result in significant power efficiencies for operators and programmers."
"Working with our technology partners, we are capitalizing on technological advancements that will ensure reliable and available power for our networks as we deploy new services," said John Schanz, Chief Network Officer and executive vice president for Comcast Cable. "Members of the SCTE Standards Program play a pivotal role in researching, developing and productizing new technologies that can help the industry meet energy objectives."
The SCTE Standards Program is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Complete information about the SCTE Standards Program-including how to become involved as an SCTE Standards Program member-is available in the Standards section of the SCTE website at www.scte.org.
The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) is a non-profit professional association that provides technical leadership for the telecommunications industry and serves its members through professional development, standards, certification and information. SCTE currently has nearly 14,000 members from the U.S. and 70 countries worldwide and offers a variety of programs and services for the industry's educational benefit. A prime example is SCTE's Smart Energy Management Initiative (SEMI), an unprecedented effort to help cable operators leverage financial and environmental advantages of implementing Green strategies. SCTE has 68 chapters and meeting groups and more than 3,000 employees of the cable telecommunications industry hold SCTE technical certifications. SCTE is an ANSI-accredited standards development organization. Visit SCTE online at www.scte.org. Connect with SCTE at www.scte.org/socialmedia.
