Jan 4, 2024

Are you ready to dive into the latest advancements in the broadband industry? Join us at CableLabs Winter Conference, a gathering for leaders, change-makers and other experts from the industry to explore and help shape the future of broadband technology. 

Back by popular demand, this exclusive event — happening in Orlando, Florida, from March 25–28, 2024 — provides a unique opportunity for CableLabs members and exhibiting vendors to strengthen connections and engage in insightful discussions. We’re excited to announce that for the first time, the conference will also include a members-only strategy session, which will close out the event on Thursday, March 28. 

Registration is open for members, and vendors can apply to exhibit. Here’s what attendees can look forward to.

Today’s Advancements and Tomorrow’s Opportunities 

Featured speakers include Craig Moffett, industry analyst and Senior Managing Director of MoffettNathanson. Moffett will kick off the conference with his perspectives on the current state of the industry, emerging trends and opportunities that lie ahead. His expertise and insights will set the stage for an engaging and enlightening conference experience.

After his remarks, Winter Conference will continue with three days of intensive, expert-led sessions delving into a wide range of topics, including: 

Strategy (all-new Strategy Session for members only): We will discuss how network demand is evolving and its impact on technology strategy and capacity planning. We will also discuss how different products might impact consumer choices and the unique differentiation potential offered by fixed-mobile convergence. 

AI and autonomous networks: Panelists will provide a snapshot of ongoing AI endeavors, the impact of those initiatives, and how the industry can create a more interconnected and intelligent network ecosystem using the technology. 

FTTH and PON: Experts will discuss fiber to the home (FTTH) and passive optical networks (PON), focusing on challenges to FTTH deployment, accelerating network deployment, and the modernization and virtualization of PON. They will cover emerging technologies such as 25G, 50G and 100G PON.  

Seamless connectivity: Panelists will spotlight some leading efforts, including early use cases and growth drivers that are sparking transformation to reshape the interconnected future.

Plus much more!

Winter Conference is also an opportunity for our member companies to explore the latest product innovations. Exhibiting vendors will gain valuable opportunities to network with decision-makers in the industry while showcasing their products. The exhibition floor — open through March 27 — will feature technology demos and product showcases, allowing our operator members and exhibiting vendors to make valuable connections that will help them stay ahead of the curve and drive their businesses forward.

Smaller Market Conference

On the first day of Winter Conference, Monday, March 25, we invite small and mid-tier operators to join Smaller Market Conference to discuss the issues that are most important to them and their teams. This event is available for CableLabs members and NCTA guests. 

Attendees will have opportunities to connect with and hear from executives and leaders from across the spectrum of responsibilities, including business strategy, technology, engineering, marketing, operations and customer experience.
