The FCC has named UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, IRVINE Professor of Computer Science SCOTT JORDAN as Chief Technology Officer, replacing HENNING SCHULZRINNE, who returns to COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY and will continue with the FCC part-time as Technology Adviser.
FCC Chairman TOM WHEELER said, “SCOTT’s engineering and technical expertise, particularly with respect to the Internet, will provide great assistance to the Commission as we consider decisions that will affect America’s communications platforms. We are delighted that he is joining us.
“SCOTT has big shoes to fill, as the contributions of outgoing Chief Technology Officer HENNING SCHULZRINNE, are innumerable. HENNING played an invaluable role within the Commission in making sure our tech transition efforts have a sound grounding in technology. Most recently his research and advice were key in the Commission’s decision to hold carriers accountable by adopting rules requiring text-to-911 services."
