Internet Protocol and Radio Frequency Networks: Creating Robust Military Networks
Source: Cisco Systems
Only by choosing which underlying mechanisms to standardize and taking action on that decision can it creates a level of connectivity within tactical military internetworks that it takes for granted in the public Internet. Standardization is the core of the Radio Aware Routing concept. It will make it possible to build radio-based networks modularly, just as the Internet is built from a standard set of wired devices and protocols. Any approach that does not include such standardization could actually push the complexity of building a tactical network beyond what is attainable.
