Center for Asymmetric Warfare’s Information Technology manager, Ron Kimmelmann, attended the Corporation of Education Network Initiatives (CENIC) Conference in Monterey, Calif. from March 8 – 11. CENIC designs, implements, and operates CalREN, the California Research and Education Network, a high-bandwidth, high-capacity Internet network.
The purpose of the conference was to discuss and design network architecture between CAW, CENIC and NPS, to meet CENIC leadership and to discuss CAW technology implementation with the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS).
At the conference, Mr. Kimmelmann was able to showcase CAW’s technical accomplishments, future technology execution, current network topology, and IA posture.
He discussed the CAW VoIP Phone System, which utilizes wireless G IP phones and the CAW Net-in-a-Box, which incorporates Hyper-V and VoIP technologies as a field deployable, full featured mobile wireless network.
The desire for the center to operate in its own address place was also discussed. CAW will have the route implemented and will receive its own class C network.
CAW has also been invited to make a technical presentation at next year’s annual CENIC Conference.
