CTC Director of Engineering Speaks at FCC Broadband Workshop

Dr. Andrew Afflerbach, CEO and Director of Engineering at CTC Technology & Energy, spoke today at the Federal Communications Commission’s broadband workshop on public safety and homeland security issues. Representing the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors (NATOA), Dr. Afflerbach participated in a panel that addressed “how best to utilize broadband technologies to prepare for, respond to and recover from major natural disasters, pandemics, acts of terrorism, and cyber attacks,” as well as “how public safety networks and applications can be secured and protected.”

The goal of the workshop, convened in Washington, D.C., was to “bring together representatives from the public safety community, government agencies, industry, and academia to discuss interoperability, redundancy, cyber security, 911, and pandemic response, among other issues.” The workshop series as a whole is designed to promote an open dialogue between the FCC and key constituents on matters important to the National Broadband Plan.
