Hardened Afghan Mission Network Operation Center Opens [Signal]
(Signal Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) MILITARY
NATO and International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) officials recently opened a new, hardened operations center for the Afghan Mission Network (AMN). Hie building was designed as a mission-critical, continuous capability providing the system management and single enterprise service management for all the NATO command, control, communications and computer capabilities deployed in Afghanistan.
The network operations center enables all communication links from the ISAF Joint Command to command and control its subordinate units. It also establishes a connection to the higher echelon and flanking commands as well as the gateway to NATO communications and information systems in Europe and North America. Moreover, it provides the plug-in for all national extensions of the AMN.
The center can host a team of up to 100 network operations engineers and administrators, functional area services technicians and trainers, and cyberdefense specialists. Its building will unify currently distributed servers, increasing the network core services. Moreover, it integrates systems from sites that will be closed in the near future because of force reduction, but which are necessary for the follow-on mission.
