FCC to Host Webinar on How Broadband Can Enhance Homeland Security

On Tuesday, Aug. 25, at 9 a.m. EDT, the Federal Communications Commission will host a workshop available to the general public via an online webinar. The goal of the workshop is to examine existing and potential uses of broadband technology by public safety entities and ways in which the technology can enhance homeland security. FCC says the event will 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 first of two panels will focus on use of broadband applications by first responders to communicate emergency information and to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies. This panel will also explore issues relating to interoperability, redundancy, and the cost of providing broadband access to public safety.

The second panel will focus on the impact of broadband technology on particular homeland security issues, such as cyber security, pandemics, bioterrorism, and critical infrastructure vulnerabilities. The panel also will examine current and future public safety use of managed IP-networks.

To join the webinar, you will first need to register and also set up the required software on your computer prior to the event. For registration and more information, visit www.broadband.gov/ws_pshs.html.
