Harmonised Resilience, Security and Mobility Capability for IP

Military communications currently require secure end-to-end, resilient connectivity via multi-homed connections, and need to support both mobile hosts and mobile networks. Today, such functions are possible to some degree, but the functions are not harmonised. Standards that support these functions were designed independently and implemented in isolation. So, achieving converged capabilities for optimal communications in forward operating areas is a technical challenge, and results in a complex network landscape which is likely to be difficult to operate and manage, and brittle under failure conditions.
