Welcome to Broadband Library

Let me welcome you to the award-winning Broadband Library, the leading repository of technical knowledge by the People, for the People of broadband cable. Broadband Library has been sharing key technical information for over 20 years through the stories of top industry leaders.

Each of the 25,000 members of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) receives the Library on a quarterly basis as an exclusive member-benefit. SCTE E-blasts an on-line copy of the publication each quarter to every member. Printed copies of Broadband Library are mailed to VIP operational members holding job titles of Engineering Supervisor, Field Level Operational Management, VP, General Manager, Director and other management level professionals including CEOs, COOs, CTOs, CFOs, EVPs, and SVPs.

Our editorial is quite unique and differs from any technology publication containing loads of information for members in a refreshing format written by top-level business leaders, engineers and Society representatives voicing their opinions and views on the broadband industry and its technology.

We have the top brass write on a quarterly basis. Such notable industry experts as Ray Celona, Andy Parrott, Dan Pike, Jorge Salinger, Stewart Schley, Nick Segura, Ray Thomas, Brady Volpe, and of course our beloved Phantom of the Library (a well-known engineer who hides his identity) each issue.

A well-known "Guest Author" appears every quarter, writing about technological advancements or issues of concern to the industry. Past "Guest Authors" have included some of the industry's top leaders and visionaries, such as Bill Bresnan, Bill Daniels, Richard Green, Leo Hindery, Amos Hostetter, Jerry Kent, John Malone, John Rigas, Jim Robbins, Ted Rogers, John Sie, Tony Werner, Michael Willner, and more recent years, Nomi Bergman, Wayne Davis, Mike LaJoie, Edward Rogers, John Schanz, Kevin Hart, Brian Allen and so many more.
Page after page of great editorial, products and services all make up the exciting “story” of broadband cable that evolves each issue — just as technology evolves and advances.
