Army Deploys Wireless Connection by HPE’s Aruba to Command Posts Worldwide

CellTowerThe U.S. Army has begun to field a wireless connection infrastructure developed by Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, to various command posts worldwide.

Command Post Wi-Fi, an 802.11ac wireless infrastructure, is implemented at Army, Army National Guard and Army Reserve tactical units as part of the Army’s Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Increment 1 communications network, Aruba said Tuesday.

“Operational flexibility is critical to modern military practices,” said Jon Green, senior director of security architecture at Aruba.

He added that Command Post Wi-Fi works to address the maneuverability and network access needs of deployed servicemen.

The wireless infrastructure delivers National Security Agency suite B as the cryptographic base for unclassified and most classified information.

Aruba will provide kits that include Aruba indoor and outdoor Gigabit Wi-Fi access points, 7000 Series cloud services controllers with RFProtect, policy enforcement firewall, advanced cryptography and AirWave.
