Tight Security for the US Joint Forces Command

Tight Security for the US Joint Forces Command

The Challenge
The U.S. Joint Forces Command in Norfolk, Va., uses fiber optics as the network backbone for their campus, connecting 3000 users and their computers in various buildings. For security reasons, wireless data links were not an option, and the Joint Forces Command wanted a streamlined system that ran fiber directly to the desktops. But they preferred to avoid the clutter involved in equipping each work station with an external media converter and its power supply.
