Vyve Broadband Cable Tech’s Grab 10 Medals At Oklahoma State SCTE Cable-Tec Games
Vyve Team Claims 10 Total, Four Gold Medals During Annual Cable-Tec Games
There are only 24 total medals in play at the annual Oklahoma State Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) Cable-Tec Games. Vyve thrived – winning 10, four gold, in the company’s initial entry into the games held at the Reed Convention Center in Midwest City, OK.
Vyve Gold Medal winners included: Ben Peters, Meter Reading; Brian Johnson, Optical Time Domain Reflectometer, and Cable Jeopardy; and Luke Bruster, Fiber Splicing.
The SCTE Games are comprised of four-man teams competing in seven skill level tasks that are timed and graded for precision. Gold, Silver and Bronze medals are awarded for each skill, and for the overall all-around tec champ, with the overall Gold winner receiving a free trip to compete at the SCTE national tec games. Other companies competing included COX Cable Oklahoma City, COX Cable Tulsa, Suddenlink, and Cable One.
Vyve’s Luke Bruster took home the overall Bronze, and Vyve medaled in six of the seven categories.
“This is a fun industry event to be sure,” said Vyve Broadband CEO Jeffrey S. DeMond, “but it does show how we stack up to our peers in Oklahoma. We’re very proud of our tech team’s medal count, as well as our entire tech team’s performance every day system wide.”
Representing Vyve at Oklahoma SCTE was: Luke Bruster (across all systems); Joe Dunivan (Cache system); Brian Johnson (Route 66 system); and Ben Peters (Shawnee systems).
