This network of devices accelerates traffic over the division's primary satellite links from BCT and TAC CPs to DMAIN
and the UHN.
In December, the battalion received Tropospheric Scatter Assets for 2/25 BCT, freeing a 93C satellite terminal for the link between DMAIN and three BCT data packages.
With the installation of data packages and TACLANEs at each BCT HQs, SFC Larry Martin and Gallagher were able to link each BCT TACLANE providing the ability to use additional gateways located at DMAIN, DREAR, and 2/25 BCT HQs.
The heaviest used Secure Network 11 connection was between DMAIN and our headquarters' gateways.
NIPR DSN connectivity was accomplished by connecting two T1s off REDCOM IGX analogue voice switches at the DMAIN and DREAR to Cisco ITS routers, which tied into NIPR call managers.
Camp Liberty (formally Camp Victory North) was home to the DMAIN, three brigade combat teams, five separate battalions, and a host of garrison activities.
