Network Modernization 2019 Summit

  • January 28-30, 2019
  • Washington, DC, United States

Modernizing Networks and Streamlining Acquisition Processes to Utilize Technology and Capabilities of Our Soldiers

Given the increasingly complex environment of emerging threats, it is a priority to have modernized networks to support soldier mobility and gain an advantage of adversaries on the battlefield. Legacy systems that cannot operate to the capabilities of our soldiers, the need to centralize data, advancing communications and mobility on the battlefield are the main drivers towards the need for modernization. In addition, networks vulnerability to hackers is also a main driver. This is an exciting time we are living in, one where soldier readiness and resiliency is in heavy demand. This summit is designed to provide the necessary dialogue to help the military bring their technology up-to-date and into the future.
