The 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, outline
progress to date and discuss possible further work.
The next meeting of the TAC will be held on Tuesday, September 27th 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
