Technical Advisory Councils
The Technical Advisory Councils (TACs) are comprised of interested members of the CENIC community who participate in the planning and design of the CalREN network and technologies. TACs provide advice on technology, including recommendations 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: Serves to provide technical analysis, review, and recommendations on the design, installation, operation, and performance of network security systems, tools, and techniques as part of CalREN and related infrastructure. The SEC TAC also provides analysis, review, and recommendations on network and data privacy issues related to CalREN and common to CENIC associates.
