SCTE: The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers

SCTE, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers, is a nonprofit professional association dedicated to advancing the careers of cable telecommunications professionals and serving the industry through excellence in providing technical training, certification and standards. SCTE is the cable telecommunications organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) also recognizes SCTE, allowing SCTE standards to be referenced by the ITU. SCTE submits standards to the ITU through the U.S. Department of State and works in cooperation with the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). Standards from SCTE are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: StandardsSubscriptions@ansi.org or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

Below are SCTE's best-selling standards. To find additional standards, please use the search bar above.

ANSI/SCTE 77 2017

Specifications for Underground Enclosure Integrity

The scope of this document covers conformance tests and requirements for the integrity of grade-level enclosures containing telecommunication or other low voltage apparatus that may be exposed to the public.


ANSI/SCTE 77-2002

Specification for Underground Enclosure Integrity

SCTE CMS WG4-0001 Covers conformance test and requirements for the integrity of grade level enclosures containing telecommunication or other low voltage apparatus that may be exposed to the public. The purpose of this standard is to describe the requirements for a comprehensive integrity system for grade level enclosures providing long installation like and minimal maintenance.


ANSI/SCTE 87 2017

Graphic Symbols for Cable Systems

The scope of this documentation is to illustrate the symbols recommended for Telecommunication drafting needs. It also provides recommendations for attributes both visible on the drafted map as well as embedded in the symbol when building a database mapping application. This will provide better data capturing and provide a better source of record for internal and external users. It will provide much better benefit when moving to a mobile solutions to our boundary partners. With the need for a cleaner and more intuitive maps the data captured is needed in more granular detail of information with embedded attributes or extended symbol attributes which allows for more comprehensive data. Due to the necessary crowding of symbols onto telecommunication system mapping and grid diagrams, some symbols are structured differently than those used in electrical and electronic diagrams.


ANSI/SCTE 09 2016

Test Method for Cold Bend

The purpose of this procedure is to provide instructions on testing the cold bend properties of flexible outdoor polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyethylene (PE) cable.


ANSI/SCTE 10 2014

Test Method for Flexible Coaxial Cable Impact

This test is to establish that specified outdoor flexible RF coaxial drop cable jackets are capable of low temperature characteristics.


ANSI/SCTE 104 2019a

Automation System to Compression System Communications Applications Program Interface (API)

This standard defines the Communications API between an Automation System and the associated Compression System that will insert SCTE 35 private sections into the outgoing Transport Stream. This standard serves as a companion to both SCTE 35 and SCTE 30.


ANSI/SCTE 104 2019a

Automation System to Compression System Communications Applications Program Interface (API)

This standard defines the Communications API between an Automation System and the associated Compression System that will insert SCTE 35 private sections into the outgoing Transport Stream. This standard serves as a companion to both SCTE 35 and SCTE 30.


ANSI/SCTE 118-1 2019

Program-Specific Ad Insertion - Data Field Definitions, Functional Overview and Application Guidelines

This document defines functionality associated with and the messaging used to control Program-Specific Ad Insertion.  Program-Specific Ad Insertion is the scheduling and insertion of a Spot into a digital broadcast Program based on the program identifier passed in the SCTE 35 [1] Cue Message.  The usage of specific data fields defined in SCTE 35 are defined in this document.


ANSI/SCTE 128-1 2020

AVC Video Constraints for Cable Television Part 1- Coding

This document defines the video coding constraints on ITU-T Rec. H.264 | ISO/IEC 14496-10 [3] video compression (hereafter called "AVC") for Cable Television. In particular, this document describes the constraints on AVC coded video elementary streams in an MPEG-2 service multiplex (single or multi-program Transport Stream).


ANSI/SCTE 144 2017

Test Procedure for Measuring Transmission and Reflection

The purpose of this test procedure is to determine the reflection at any port, or the transmission between any two ports of a properly terminated device, as measured across a frequency range of interest. Depending on use of the data, return loss, insertion gain or loss, isolation, response variation or bandwidth can be derived. This specification is applicable to the testing of 75 O devices.
