WASHINGTON (NNS) -- In a June 30 memo, "Streamlined Process for Commercial Broadband Deployment," Deputy Under Secretary of the Navy (DUSN) for Management Thomas W. Hicks issued guidance that streamlines the process for deployment and expansion of commercial broadband services.
"Improving the process by which [Department of the Navy] installations are provided the best possible access to commercial broadband systems facilitates future enterprise telecommunications and mobility solutions and enhances the quality of life for Sailors, Marines, civilians, and their families," said Hicks.
The Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy, Installations and Environment and the DON Chief Information Officer led a DON working group for this improvement initiative, which included working with the Wireless Infrastructure Association. The resulting coordination process is designed to reduce the time required for commercial broadband deployment from up to five years to less than one.
