SCTE•ISBE members are to vote on whether the organisation should combine forces with CableLabs.
If the proposal to combine the two cable engineering associations is approved SCTE would become a subsidiary of Cablelabs, and retain its brand.
In a statement SCTE•ISBE said the merger would expand the availability of training, learning, development, and certification programs to members of both groups and ensure standards are more closely aligned.
There are no plans to reduce the headcount at either organisation or to reduce costs by eliminating services, programs or chapters.
The UK-based SCTE (Society for Broadband Professionals) is a separate organisation with no direct connection to SCTE•ISBE.
