Teleste’s cable extender successful in the SCTE 2016 Technological Innovation Awards

We are proud to announce that our Double Galvanic Isolated Multimedia Coaxial Cable Extender has been confirmed as the winner of the SCTE 2016 Technological Innovation of the Year Award.

SCTE, the Society of Broadband Professionals, announced its 2016 Technological Innovation Award winners in London, 9 April.  In addition to the prestigious Innovation of the year Award, Teleste’s cable extender was selected as the winner of the category ‘Best CPE solution’.

The new cable extender offers superior RF performance up to 2 GHz and provides easy migration path to DOCSIS 3.1 and beyond. Compared to the ‘old school’ wall outlets its innovative design offers faster and easier new and retro-fit installations.

As standard industry wall outlets are easily damaged during installations, difficult to replace and even cumbersome to handle, Teleste's cable extender supports both wall and surface mounting and can fit on to existing wall box plastics by using an innovative universal add-on front plastic module. Installations are simple and it is possible re-prep the coaxial cables and still fit in the cable extender module, which is not possible with any current wall outlets.

Founded in 1945, the SCTE is a Learned Society and non-profitmaking organization whose aim is to raise the standard of broadband engineering in the telecommunications industry. More information about the Technological Innovation Awards, and other SCTE activities, is available at www.theSCTE.eu.
