In regard to the posted message about the Army going with the wireless trend, I disagree.
What benefits will the wireless local-area network provide? The garrison
buildings are already wired, and a wireless LAN brings up many more security
I have talked to security gurus about using wireless in a tactical environment,
where networks are put up and taken down continuously. They said it will
not happen in the Marine Corps due to the security risks involved. I do
not see the benefit of a slower, less secure garrison network.
Also, the Navy Marine Corps Intranet will be a catastrophe. The bottom
line is, it will take three working days to fix something that a Marine
can fix in an hour.
