Technical Advisory Councils
The Technical Advisory Councils (TACs) serve to provide technical review and recommendations on infrastructure issues relating to the California Research & Education Network (CalREN) as requested by the CENIC board of directors. TACs are made up of interested members of the CalREN community who work closely on hardware, software, interoperability issues, performance management, and network research priorities.
CalREN-HPR TAC: Advises on the development of CENIC's High-Performance Research (HPR) network, which provides leading-edge services for large-application users at CENIC Associate sites through national and international research and educational networks such as Internet2, ESNet, and AARnet.
CalREN-DC TAC: Advises on CENIC's Digital California (DC) network, which provides high-quality network services for faculty, staff, students, researchers, patrons, and patients in member institutions through the commercial Internet.
CalREN-SEC TAC: Advises on network security systems, tools, and techniques as part of CalREN and related infrastructure, as well as data privacy issues related to CalREN and common to CENIC Associates.
Individuals eligible to participate in TACs are employed by CENIC Associates as defined in the CENIC Bylaws by its board of directors and listed on the website.
TAC members should actively participate in the discussion list, meeting, and subcommittees as needed. For more information about getting involved with TACs, contact Brian Court.
