Susan Lawrence, the Army‘s chief information officer, recently said the branch will continue its efforts to modernize network infrastructure despite spending cuts and troop reductions in Afghanistan, the Army News Service reported Friday.
J.D. Leipold reports Lawrence told members of Association of the United States Army during an event the LandWarNet program is designed to manage financial, materiel and human resources across the service.
“We ensure soldiers have the best capability available to them, everything over IP; high-definition, full-motion video; unlimited bandwidth, whatever request they’ve needed we’ve been able to get that technology to them very quickly,” Lawrence said.
She added the Army plans to reduce the number network access points this year with the goal of improving detection of unauthorized probes and malicious programs.
The Army is also working to expand the Army’s portfolio of collaboration applications and data storage services, she said.
