Local Cable-Tec Games,
typically held during chapter vendor shows or regional cable shows, provide an
arena for contestants to compete in events that measure their technical
abilities, such as cable splicing and meter reading, and demonstrate their
knowledge, such as cable jeopardy. Each year, first-place winners of the local
competitions are recognized for their achievements as they gather to compete on
an international level during SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo®.
International Cable-Tec Games
features the year's local winners competing against each other at SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo®
for the international gold, silver, and bronze awards in seven categories: cable
splicing, meter reading, cable jeopardy, OTDR, fiber splicing, drop connection
and MTDR. Top winners place first, second and third overall.
