Teri TakaiThe U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency, Air Force and Army will share an upgraded router system in a move aimed to save the Pentagon organizations more than $1 billion, Fedscoop reported Thursday.

Cory Bennett writes the Defense Department aims for this network modernization and sharing effort to help increase bandwidth and improve information technology infrastructure security.

Teri Takai, Pentagon chief information officer, said the consolidation is a step towards realizing the department’s goal of a joint information environment, according to Fedscoop.

Fedscoop reports the Army aims to cut $785 million in IT spending between 2015 and 2019 by integrating hundreds of architecture stacks.
