The Society publishes its Broadband Journal four times per year. It has now become the leading authoritative magazine in the cable and broadband market and offers truly global and independent coverage.
Incorporating interviews with leading international industry, government figures, academic and association figures, Broadband Journal offers a strategic insight into the latest news, company and product developments, technological and technical advances, innovations and new business opportunities. Key issues are debated and regular, independent analysis into market prospects and barriers can be found in each issue. The Journal typically contains four to six White Papers, industry and Society news, articles on the fundamentals of broadband technology and exhibition/conference reports.
7000 plus copies of each issue of Broadband Journal will be distributed at key exhibitions worldwide in 2019, including FTTH Conference, DVB World, Cable Europe, NAB, ANGA COM, IBC, Liberty Global Technology Forum, Cable Tec Expo and, of course, SCTE’s own events worldwide.
