Let’s Play TAG

Posted by: Brent Olson on June 9, 2010 at 10:33 am

ICYMI, the Broadband Internet Technical Advisory Group (TAG) was announced this morning.  TAG is a group of leading broadband and high-tech companies, spearheaded by Professor Dale Hatfield, a former Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chief Technologist and currently the Executive Director of the Silicon Flatirons Center.

What does TAG intend to do? This is from its news release, and sums up the group and its mission nicely:

“The TAG’s mission is to bring together engineers and other similar technical experts to develop consensus on broadband network management practices or other related technical issues that can affect users’ Internet experience, including the impact to and from applications, content and devices that utilize the Internet.” 

While there is more work to be done over the coming weeks to formalize the group, we are proud to be a participant in its formation.  This effort demonstrates the interdependence of all players and their mutual interest in and desire for innovation in the internet platform.  We look forward to working collaboratively with all participants to ensure its success.
