  1. ANSI OKs 3 SCTE Standards

    The  American National Standards Institute has approved three SCTE standards, one on coaxial cable and two on energy efficiency. ANSI/SCTE 34 2016, "Test Method for Cored Depth Verification," is intended to determine the cored depth of trunk, feeder and distribution coaxial cable. The core depth is the internal measured distance between the dielectric foam and the square-cut end of the outer sheath. The test method defines the suggested method for core depth measurement. ANSI/SCTE 231 2016, "General Test Procedures for Evaluation of Energy Efficiency Metrics and in Support of Functional Density Metrics," covers the general test procedures that are common to all equipment types and specifies the environmental conditions for evaluating cable equipment energy efficiency metrics. Expectations of measurement equipment as well as guidelines on the recording of results are also covered. The standard will be included as a normative reference in each supplemental standard in the series covering metrics and specific test procedures for the various equipment types. ANSI/SCTE 232 2016, "Key Performance Metrics: Energy Efficiency & Functional Density of CMTS, CCAP, and Time Server Equipment," is the second of multiple parts in a series that provides the cable operator with a standard reference to determine how well a piece of rack or shelf equipment performs in terms of minimizing the power required to do its particular job. In addition, the standard provides the means to quantify the amount of useful work the equipment provides per physical space. This part of the series focuses on the CMTS, CCAP, and other related cable operator critical facility equipment. The standards are available at http://www.scte.org/SCTE/Standards/Download/SCTE/Standards/Download_SCTE_Standards.aspx .
