How Are You Innovating for the Future?
Let’s innovate together. Watch this video to learn how to submit your product, service, application or technology.
With a tenfold increase in speed plus enhanced reliability and security, 10G is the broadband network of the future that will support whatever comes next.
10G is the broadband network of the future that will deliver internet speeds of 10 gigabits per second, with the power and capacity to support whatever the future holds. 10G will offer speeds ten times faster than the fastest internet currently available. Think of all the technologies that have become possible since the days of dial up! The improved reliability, security, speed and latency of the 10G network mean that the future is just around the corner.
Unlike mobile wireless networks where the “G” stands for “Generation,” the “G” in 10G refers to gigabits. In 1995, internet speeds were limited at 145 megabits per second (mbps). There are one thousand megabits in a gigabit. 10G will significantly improve internet speed, reliability, latency and security. Fast, reliable internet is what makes many technologies function and keeps us all connected. With faster internet speeds, more incredible technologies will be possible. Bottom line, 10G will make the future work.
The 10G network will provide reliability, security, speed and low latency. Reliability ensures a stable internet connection regardless of the number of devices connected. Security means that you can always be sure your data is safe. Speed means that data can be delivered to the end user faster, making even more immersive experiences available. Low latency means these experiences will be seamless, without lag.
You might be a good fit for The Challenge if you’re:
There are four categories: LIVE, WORK, LEARN and PLAY.
The LIVE category, judged in part by Mayo Clinic, focuses on technologies that will improve healthcare.
The WORK category, judged by Corning, focuses on technologies that can make us more productive professionals.
The LEARN category, judged in part by Zoom, centers on technologies that make education easier and more effective.
The PLAY category highlights technologies that will make entertainment more immersive.
The contest has four categories: live, work, learn and play. One winner will be chosen for each category as well as a Grand Prize Winner and a People’s Choice Winner. The category winners will be narrowed down by industry experts for that category. From there, business leaders will choose a winner for each category as well as the Grand Prize Winner. The People’s Choice Award Winner will be selected by business leaders from one of the top three video submissions that best fits the 10G Challenge criteria and receives the highest number of votes on our online voting platform.
Your video should include:
Six winners will be chosen: One Grand Prize Winner, one winner in each category and a People’s Choice Winner.
The Grand Prize Winner will receive:
The four category winners will receive:
The People’s Choice Winner receives:
You may submit more than one idea. Each idea must be submitted separately, including a 3-minute video for each submission.
Universities, companies and teams are all welcome to participate. All members of the team must be 18 years or older. Regardless of the number of people on your team winning submissions will only receive air transportation, hotel costs and conference passes for two people (up to $5,000 USD) to SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2022.
You are welcome to submit even if your technology is only in the concept stage. As long as you are able to answer every question on the submission form and provide a video describing the technology, your idea will be considered.
If two extremely similar ideas are submitted, both will be considered, regardless of which was submitted first.
