With the Army announcing
that it is going to use a wireless local-area network, the Navy once again
must follow the Army's lead!
Two years ago the Navy decided to put all of its information technology
eggs into one $6.9 billion basket and hatched the Navy Marine Corps Internet.
With new technology coming at a record pace, the Army realized the problems
with NMCI and opted not go that route.
Now the Army will have real cutting-edge technology to win the war against
terrorism. The NMCI Navy will lag far behind with its LAN-locked equipment
and a contract, which locks it into three-year refresh rates!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't a wireless LAN be more ideal to
serve the Navy?
One more thing. To answer Lt. Col. Dalla Betta respectfully:
You are correct sir, to realize it does take "brave souls" to speak
their mind here. That is the freedom you as a brave Marine fight to protect
each day to grant us that right to free speech as Americans. Withholding
our names is only to protect our jobs.
