    The first complete VoIP system under the Army’s IMOD program is now up and running. LGS Innovations did the installation at Fort Leonard Wood in Herndon. Va. It involved nearly 1,000 Avaya LSC VoIP instruments to support unified communications. LGS Innovations announced it had won a $14.1 million award to update the Army base’s network in March of 2013. At the time the company said the Avaya LSC solution would be replacing the facility’s Nortel SL100 solution.

    HERNDON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LGS Innovations announced the successful installation of the first complete VoIP system under the IMOD program at Fort Leonard Wood.

    This undertaking involved an enhancement of fiber infrastructure, relocating cable from legacy to new shelters, and the installation of new racks and cabinets to support voice and data modernization. LGS also deployed nearly 1,000 Avaya LSC VoIP instruments to support unified communications (UC) at the base.

    “The network modernization efforts at Fort Leonard Wood represents major milestones in the Army’s Infrastructure Modernization (IMOD) program,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations. “Modern network infrastructures are key to providing faster speeds and improved services to enhance soldier training and quality of life on base.”

    Is the internet becoming obsolete?

    The government agency that invented the network that runs the world seems to think so. So the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has launched a program aimed at “completely rethinking how to network and compute” by taking advantage of the computing resources that have begun to saturate the world around us in the form of smartphones, tablets, connected vehicles, iInternet of things endpoints, and more.

    DARPA’s Dispersed Computing program (or DCOMP, as it’s known) adds another moniker to the set of emerging technologies that includes fog computing, edge computing, and distributed computing. DCOMP takes these paradigms one step further, however, and envisions a network that is able to borrow processing and communications resources from its many nodes as and when needed to accomplish whatever task its users might throw at it.

    “There have been several revolutions in communications and network topology, but in terms of mobile communications, this is the next one,” says Kevin Kelly, CEO of LGS Innovations, which is also working on networking technologies for the program.

    Spectrum management—and the human factor—are key to navigating an increasingly autonomous environment

    It’s a dark night, but from above you can see navigational lights moving across a calm sea in a colorful, orchestrated traffic pattern. Minimally-manned ships sail past each other on their way to the next port or station, assisted by automated identification systems, avoidance radar, autopilots, and other increasingly automated controls.

    Despite these advanced and increasingly autonomous navigation and control systems, accidents still happen—sometimes causing extensive damage, injuries, and fatalities, as with the collision in June between USS Fitzgerald and ACX Crystal, a container ship, off the coast of Japan. This was followed by the mid-August accident between USS John McCain and Alnic MC, an oil tanker, off Singapore.

    As I write this, investigations into both collisions are ongoing, but I can imagine several feasible scenarios that may have contributed to this accident, or could
    easily cause the next one. [READ FULL ARTICLE]
