FCC ANNOUNCES TECHNOLOGICAL ADVISORY COUNCIL MEETINGThe FCC today announced the next meeting of the Technological Advisory Council (TAC). The
Council, comprised of a diverse array of leading technical experts, helps to provide the technical
expertise the Commission needs to identify important areas of innovation and develop informed
technology policies supporting America's competitiveness in the global economy. The TAC is
helping the Commission to continue the momentum of ideas and recommendations in the
National Broadband Plan, such as how broadband communications can be part of the solution for
the delivery and cost containment of health care, for energy and environmental conservation, for
education innovation and in the creation of jobs.
At its initial meeting held on November 4th, 2010, TAC members had identified a number of
technology areas that could influence the creation of jobs or were issues affecting the nation's
economic competiveness. Since that initial meeting of the TAC, members have helped to further
prioritize and develop some of these ideas. The Technical Advisory Council members will
discuss this work and outline progress to date. In addition, the TAC will also discuss suggestions
for a work program to continue through 2012.
The next meeting of the TAC will be held on Tuesday, December 20th 2011, from 1:00 pm to
4:00 pm in the Commission Meeting Room, 445 12th Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. The
public is invited to attend.
Tom Wheeler, Managing Director, Core Capital Partners, serves as Chairman of the Council.
Walter Johnston, Chief of the Electromagnetic Compatibility Division, serves as the Designated
Federal Officer. Julius Knapp, Chief of the Office of Engineering and Technology is the
