How it Works

Broadband Technology Report invites vendors to submit information, photos, and spec sheets about top products and solutions that have been released or upgraded since the 2021 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo. Members of the independent Diamond Technology Reviews judging panel will evaluate each entry based on its uniqueness, innovation, ease of use, efficiency, reliability, and contribution to profitability.

Judges assign each entry they review a score of 1-5 Diamonds (with 5 Diamonds the best mark possible), as well as to provide their technical opinions about the entries. The scores for each entry are then averaged; entries that receive an average of 3.5 Diamonds or above are considered Diamond Technology Reviews Honorees.
