Share Your Ideas on Developing the National Broadband Plan.
We seek to develop a set of research recommendations that Congress should consider to enable the U.S. to be a global leader in broadband networking in the years 2020 and beyond and to further broadband deployment in the US over the next decade. This plan will consider the competitiveness of the US marketplace; more specifically, how research funding might help bolster areas where the US can lead technology innovation. The process of developing these recommendations will focus on an open discussion with substantial outreach to industry, academia, government and the public. To begin this process of gathering input the FCC will hold a workshop on November 23rd. This meeting will include two sessions – a morning session with academic participants and an afternoon session with industry participants.
The following are some of the preliminary topics that will be covered at this workshop. If you would like to discuss any other topics, please send us your suggestions.
- State of broadband research
- Research priorities including the need for basic research
- The research funding process
- Technology transfer and commercialization
