Network Modernization: Secure Wi-Fi

Description

Secure Wi-Fi uses the National Security Agency-approved Commercial Solutions for Classified solution to provide secure classified and unclassified Wi-Fi to the Command Post. By going wireless, Command Post set up and tear down times is significantly reduced, for increased unit maneuverability, operational flexibility, and survivability. Logistics burden is also reduced with less cable and protective flooring needed to be transported from location to location. Soldiers can be untethered from their workstations with wireless laptops for improved collaboration. Following Command Post setup, units can turn on their Secure Wi-Fi hotspots andthe network can come up first instead of last, in minutes instead of hours, and Soldiers can stay connected longer when jumping the command post.
