Overview[edit | edit source]

The Federal Networking Council (FNC) was chartered by the National Science and Technology Council's Committee on Computing, Information and Communications (CCIC) to act as a forum for networking collaborations among Federal agencies to meet their research, education, and operational mission goals and to bridge the gap between the advanced networking technologies being developed by research FNC agencies and the ultimate acquisition of mature version of these technologies from the commercial sector.

On October 1, 1997, FNC activities were shifted to the Large Scale Networking (LSN) group of the Computing, Information, and Communications (CIC) R&D subcommittee of the Committee on Computing, Information and Communications Applications Council.
