Founded in 1988 by not-for-profit research and development consortium that has cable operators as its members. System operators from around the world are eligible to be members. Members dues are based on revenue generated from the cable services and businesses they sell to consumers. The CableLabs Board of Directors is composed of the Chief Executive Officers of member companies, thus affording business and strategic insight into the technology development process.

CableLabs works with its members to determine what service requirements are to be supported by new technologies and new services. CableLabs then seeks to support those requirements through open interface specifications, written in tandem with members and suppliers. The specifications, in turn, take much of the guess work out of vendors' engineering decisions as to where cable operators are moving with many of their new businesses. These freely published specifications are available at CableLabs Specifications Database.

This collaborative process is designed to get products to market more quickly and at lower DOCSIS(R) suite of specifications.

CableLabs' facilitation of intellectual property rights (IPR) discussions minimizes exposure to intellectual property risk for companies entering the marketplace.

CableLabs has approximately 180 employees with an additional on-site population of visiting engineers and consultants. CableLabs maintains two offices: Louisville, Colorado, and Sunnyvale, California.
