Professor Henning Schulzrinne Makes All the Right Connections
June 16, 2021
If you’ve ever used Zoom or Skype, made a voice call on your smartphone, or otherwise streamed real-time multimedia, you can thank Professor Henning G. Schulzrinne. Schulzrinne co-developed the key protocols underlying those applications as well as many others indispensable in our remote world. Moreover, for years he’s been working tirelessly to identify how these technologies can be better leveraged to promote the public good and to expand Americans’ equitable access to them, as chief technology officer for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a technology fellow in the office of U.S. Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, and in numerous other senior policy positions.
