SCTE IP Challenge

Get ready to test your IP Knowledge!

The annual SCTE 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® 2018, which utilized hands-on activities to bridge traditional RF to IP knowledge transfer.

From the customized online virtual qualifier matches, eight participants are selected for the live, in-person finals during Cable-Tec Expo. These eight participants receive a Complimentary Full Conference Registration to Cable-Tec Expo, where they compete against one another as well as the defending 2017 IP Challenge Champion in the live IP Challenge final.
