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 consists of two online virtual qualifier matches and an in-person live final, during SCTE Cable-Tec Expo® 2016, which utilizes hands-on activities to bridge traditional RF to IP knowledge transfer.

From the customized online virtual qualifier match eight participants will be selected for the live, in-person finals during Cable-Tec Expo. These eight participants will receive a free pass to Cable-Tec Expo, where they will compete against one another as well as the defending 2015 IP Challenge Champion in the live IP Challenge final. Who will be crowned this year’s champion?

The 2016 SCTE/ISBE IP Challenge is sponsored by
