All interested parties are invited to participate in the second meeting of ITU-Tís Focus Group on Smart Cable Television (FG SmartCable) in Boulder, USA, 20-21 September 2012, hosted by Cisco Systems. The deadline for contributions to this meeting is 13 September. The meeting is open to participation by all interested parties, including non-members of ITU, free of charge.


FG SmartCable is on course to mapping Smart Cable TVís standardization landscape; gathering experts from government, industry and the standardization community to determine the fieldís interoperability shortfalls and standardization gaps, and thereby provide the basis for future ITU-T standardization work in this regard.


At the same venue, 17-19 September, Cisco Systems will host a number of ďrapporteur group meetingsĒ for participants in the work of FG SmartCableís parent group, ITU-T Study Group 9 (Broadband cable and TV).


FG SmartCableís first meeting in June, well attended in Geneva and remotely, decided the groupís management team and initial work plan.


In broad terms, the group will examine: the use cases and requirements of Smart Cable TV applications, advanced transport technologies including cable-related aspects of Machine to Machine communications (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT), secure content and application delivery, user interfaces and accessibility, and multi-screen and mobile device applications.
