The ministry hopes the new network will enhance the cooperation between the different branches of the armed forces, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said.

 The U.S. Department of Defense is building its own secure 4G network to enhance collaboration between the different branches of the armed forces, according to the president of the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The network is part of an effort called "the common information environment", which will include 15,000 DoD networks in the cloud, said Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, in a speech (PDF) presented Thursday at the Institute Brookings, an influential think tank based in Washington, DC in addition to strengthening collaboration, the new network will be "much safer, helping to ensure the integrity of our systems against interruption battle," said Dempsey.

The network, which will allow access to a variety of mobile devices expected to be operational by mid next year, Dempsey said, as he gave an overview of the type of security service people will know.

"This phone is both Batman and James Bond jealous," he said, saying what he said was a mobile phone insurance. "With tools like this, generation of smartphones to help us reach our army to initiate a new era of mobile command and control. "

Part of the plan is a federated application store that will allow DoD users to share content across multiple devices, he said.

"Using off-the-shelf technology, we bring the full force of the technological revolution in the classified environment," said Dempsey.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Agency for Defense Information Systems approved the use of Apple iOS 6, Galaxy S4 and 10 BlackBerry U.S. government and military departments that use the DoD network. The Department of Defense currently has more than 600,000 commercial mobile devices in operational use and the pilot, whose 470,000 41,000 Apple Devices BlackBerry, Android devices and 8700.

Noting that the U.S. military has made ​​significant progress in embracing the field of cyber-security, Dempsey echoed the concerns of the efforts of the Department of Defense to protect previous local critical infrastructure private sector are "delayed".

"Very few companies have invested adequately in cyber-security. I fear that opponents will try to exploit this vulnerability in the armor of our nation," said the general. "For them, the economy and infrastructure are easier targets than our armed forces."

Improved infrastructure battlefield communication was a major objective of the Ministry of Defense. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency announced last December that it was looking for ideas on how to improve the platform wireless communication of the army to deliver 100 Gbps connections.
