Navy OKs Intranet Connectivity for iOS, Android Devices

mobile device managementThe Department of the Navy has authorized its component organizations to procure, implement and connect Android and iOS mobile devices to the Navy Marine Corps Intranet network.

The Navy intends for current NMCI users to transition from BlackBerry to authorized iOS or Android devices as the military branch’s existing BlackBerry products approach the end of their useful life, according to an article posted Monday on the DON Chief Information Officer website.

NMCI is designed to support up to 15,000 iPhone and iPad military users across the U.S., but the Navy aims to increase the network’s capacity to 30,000 by the end of this summer.

Apple smartphones and tablets are certified to access email, calendar, task lists and contacts through NMCI.

The military branch expects to begin migration to Android-based devices later this year.
