FCC appoints senior tech adviser

Henning Schulzrinne

Henning Schulzrinne is returning to the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC has appointed him senior adviser for technology in the Office of Strategic Planning and Policy Analysis.

Schulzrinne served as the FCC's CTO from 2011 to 2014 and has spent the past two years as a professor of computer science and electrical engineering at the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science at Columbia University.

He will serve as senior adviser until the end of the year, when he will return to his former position of CTO and replace Scott Jordan, who is leaving the agency.

"Henning's return to the agency ensures the commission will continue to have outstanding technology expertise on hand as we tackle the policy problems of today's complex communications networks," FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said in a statement. "Henning's experience and vision have been invaluable to our work. With complex technical challenges such as broadband privacy and confronting robocalls and spoofing, I am grateful both that Henning has agreed to return and that he and Scott will overlap for a time."
