Join a Working Group
As a Working Group member, you’ll participate in the creation of new specifications and test plans that meet the expectations of the entire industry. This also helps you gain invaluable insights and better prepare for the future.
Work With Us On-site
Our Visiting Engineer program gives you access to our tools and workspace in exchange for your help in drafting specifications that align with your company’s priorities. If you wish, you can also work remotely as a Contributing Engineer.
Review Draft Specs
In addition to accessing publicly available specifications, you can get a sneak peek at brand-new drafts, as well as technical papers, software code and more, 30 to 60 days prior to issuance. You’ll also get an opportunity to comment before the documents are released. All of this, and more, lives in our platform InfoZone.
We’re always interested in partnering with our technology suppliers to tackle a specific problem facing the cable industry and are open to a variety of arrangements.
If you’d like to explore co-innovation opportunities, please contact us.
*A bit of "housekeeping" info: We love to share our work and ideas with others who are equally passionate about innovation, but we still have to keep some secret things secret. Before joining our vendor community, we’ll ask you to sign a few confidentiality agreements based on your level of participation.
