Unreliable Wi-Fi in hangars, flight lines, and readiness and maintenance operations prevents the DoD aviators from seeing the full mission value from electronic workflow. ID Technologies and CommScope have teamed up to deliver an end-to-end solution for reliable communications for unit level operations, depot maintenance and support for platoon and battalion fixed and rotary wing operations.
Overview: Maryland National Guard Needs Scalable, Easy-to-Manage Systems.
As an IT partner to the United States federal government, we deliver technological solutions that are flexible and sustainable. The Maryland National Guard needed a scalable IT system that was familiar to current staff and easy to manage for minimally trained new hires to accommodate high turnover rates. An RFI was issued and we designed a solution based on vSAN, a storage virtualization software that combines storage and computing for virtual machines into a single device. We were able to speak with the IT decision makers for the MD National Guard and identify major issues with system management. We await the release of the actual RFP.
Our solution provided a system that has intuitive management interfaces and excellent initial implementation documentation. We explained the documentation and implementation approach that ID Tec would take, which was very well received by the MD National Guard. Our goal is to offer soft services that are low cost with high value. Ultimately, ID Tec provided the MD National Guard with a VMware and HCI system that provides critical scalability to accommodate future requirements and is easy for the IT department to manage with minimally trained staff.
