Trusted Internet Connection Architecture for Single Service Providers
Source: Cisco Systems
As federal agencies plan their migration toward compliance with the OMB mandate to consolidate Internet connections and reduce exposure to cyber threats, two architectural challenges must be addressed. First is the consolidation or elimination of these connections, which could require a new, scalable Internet portal architecture that meets all security and communication needs for any agency. Second, the new traffic patterns may require agencies to optimize their routing architecture, and likely compel agencies to create a TIC backbone for access to these portals. Cisco has proven, deployed solutions available to address the architectural challenges agencies face in complying with OMB's mandate. Cisco is prepared to support federal agencies in the planning, testing, and deployment of a TIC-compliant architecture.
