About

Editorial Mission Statement:

As the official blog of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers, Inc. (SCTE), the editorial mission of tech.know TM is to provide quality, credible, informative, and valuable information on the latest technology, innovation, and thought leadership to educate and foster the advancement of cable and telecommunications engineering.

We want to raise awareness by showcasing the cool factor behind the technologies that are fundamental to cable telecommunications networks and highlight how the knowledge and use of them provide value to society. We intend for this blog to serve as a resource and forum to bring together technology movers and shakers to sound off on the tech topics that we post. We want our readers to engage in the conversation by sharing opinions, adding value to discussions, providing relevant information, and “geeking-out” on the power of connecting the world.

We created this editorial statement to make it clear that we are open, transparent, and focused on discussing technology solutions. We realize that technical innovation is often proprietary and certain intellectual property rights come with it, but we are not here to sell products or technology services in any way. Instead this platform is a sounding board for sharing ideas, obtaining feedback, and generating new thinking on existing and emerging technologies. We’re here to point out tech topics that need attention — whether it’s to generate participation in their development; promote their value, use, and integration; or to provide information and opinion on where they are headed.

Be at the leading edge of technology by following and getting involved.

We welcome leads and ideas for post topics. If interested, email editorial@techdotknow.com.
