Hot Technical Topics in Telecommunications and the Role of Technical Experts in Modern Telecom/Technology Policymaking

Tags: Technology Policy

Sponsored by:

Hogan Lovells US LLP

Join Dale Hatfield along with other veteran telecom and technology technical experts as they discuss hot technical topics in telecommunications and the importance of technical rigor in telecom and technology policymaking.

Dale Hatfield has long approached tough policy issues with an engineer’s problem-solving attitude. He often says that if you lock all the engineers in a room (and the lawyers out), they will find a solution or at least clarify disputed assumptions and legitimate disagreements.

This panel will highlight telecom issues where Dale has made a contribution and the important role of technical experts in solving difficult policy problems.

The discussion is meant to highlight the importance of technical rigor and may be particularly useful for attorneys seeking to learn about the technical facets of current and past telecom and technology policy issues.
