Research the advantages and disadvantages of various technological approaches and make detailed recommendations to the Technical Panel;

Explore emerging technologies to enhance the network's ability to deliver services;

Provide advice on technical issues to the Collaborative Aggregation Partnership as they aggregate bandwidth and develop a shared network;

Take part in an annual meeting of all network participants to discuss network performance, growth projections, emerging technologies, vendor service, and reliability;

Identify "best practices" and recommend "standards and guidelines" for the network architecture.

Authority

This work group will be chartered by the NITC Technical panel. Representatives serve on behalf of their network constituents and provide technical input to the Collaborative Aggregation Partnership in order to serve the telecommunications needs of Nebraska network participants.
