DID has more on the Navy’s worldwide ONE-NET network…
ONE-NET is a Navy-wide initiative to consolidate disparate networks at major fleet bases and stations in Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East into a common and secure IT infrastructure. ONE-NET is based on the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) architecture and is designed to be interoperable with the NMCI and the Department of Defense-wide Global Information Grid.
The transition to ONE-NET is being directed by the Naval Network Warfare Command. Consolidating overseas networks into ONE-NET will increase warfighting effectiveness by ensuring that technology infrastructure is current and under a single management source. With ONE-NET, sailors will be able to log on to a system that is reliable, and they will have a global address list to connect to people in other locations.
