to the Department of Defense Information Network.
Commanders have so praised the performance of JNN
that the Army now wants to buy it for the entire force, at a cost of more than a billion dollars.
While typically the Army would not field a system until it has been approved for combat use by an independent testing agency, JNN
was needed in such a rush that the Army waived the traditional tests.
Accessing brigade shared files on their file-server connected off the JNN
was so slow that it would take hours to upload one PowerPoint file.
In November of 2007, the Director of the Experimentation Division reported that the experiment demonstrated that the JNN
Network, with minor configuration changes, had the capability and scalability to support the additional TS/SCI traffic requirements for both current and future forces as defined by the Intelligence Center's COIC.
Expanding our involvement in the Army JNN
initiative and the Marine Corps VSWAN and LSWAN initiatives, this award underscores DataPath's ability to meet joint requirements and highlights the military's increasing focus on interoperability.
Since the outlying JNN
was like a hub, putting the servers at this central location alleviated the congestion of traffic going to the main TOC.
The 319th Unit University currently has over 200 student Soldiers enrolled, and contains JNN
, FBCB2, WIN-T, Promina, STT, COMSEC, tactical radios, fiber optics, and SKL training.
Chris Stewart-Amidei was the JNN
