Mike Leff, vice president for global defense at AT&Tâ€™s public sector business, has cited how commercial networks could help theÂ Defense DepartmentÂ meet its readiness and mobility requirements, C4ISRNET reported Friday.
â€œDoD needs the flexibility to move and maneuver quickly â€¦ To do that you have to have a network that adapts rapidly to the actual threat environment,â€ Leff said.
â€œSimply put, commercial networks are intrinsically faster and more resilient, and have much greater reach and capability.”
Leff also mentioned the potential benefit of leveraging industryâ€™s investment in network infrastructure modernization to DoD.
â€œIf you can take advantage of commercial investment, you have a global services backbone that provides a network-on-demand capability, a more intelligent network with bandwidth that could be sized dynamically up and down,â€ he said.
