Case Studies

Connected Battlefield

Advancing readiness at the edge

By using edge computing and deployable platforms, we’ve learned the military is better able to understand how to collect, store and correlate data to make military actions safer and “connect the battlefield,” capable of gathering and transmitting data from many sources back to analytics and command centers. Moreover, preliminary analysis of edge use-cases within the defense and security community shows sizable cost-savings, greater mobility, and improved cyber-security and capacity. As stated in the National Defense Strategy (NDS) and emphasized the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), “increasingly complex security environment are defined by rapid technological change, (with) challenges from adversaries in every operating domain.” In this environment, “there can be no complacency.” (The National Defense Strategy 2018).

Cisco along with Klas Telecom stewarded disaster relief efforts of Hurricane Maria, for two key Puerto Rico Police and Emergency Management  Agency sites. Their relief efforts provided real-world basic communications capabilities leveraging baseband and satcom backhaul for two remote sites giving the State Emergency Management Team the ability to communicate across the island and back to the US Mainland. This collaborative effort has resulted in opening up channels to manage logistics and provide real-time common operational reports and updates
