SCTE•ISBE IP Challenge

Get ready to test your IP Knowledge!

The annual SCTE•ISBE IP Challenge provides cable professionals an opportunity to showcase their IP knowledge by competing in a blended-style Jeopardy match that includes traditional questions, router and CMTS configuration, and hands-on activities. The SCTE•ISBE IP Challenge consisted of two online virtual qualifier matches and an in-person live final, during SCTE•ISBE Cable-Tec Expo® 2017, which utilized hands-on activities to bridge traditional RF to IP knowledge transfer.

From the customized online virtual qualifier matches eight participants weree selected for the live, in-person finals during Cable-Tec Expo. These eight participants received a Complimentary Full Conference Registration to Cable-Tec Expo, where they competed against one another as well as the defending 2016 IP Challenge Champion in the live IP Challenge final. 

The 2017 SCTE•ISBE IP Challenge is sponsored by
