"Personally, I would have used a 3745 router with an integrated 16 port Ehterswitch module providing 802.11af inline power to local Cisco IP phones and 1200 series G-radio dual band Cisco AP and 1400 bridge to get up to 20 miles out. I'd have sold Compaq I-paq's running IP Blue's PDA softphone application via WiFi wireless networking. This enables soldiers to talk via PDA's with toll-quality and conferencing, -all that.
As for the video surveylance - the Cisco LEAP security can be hacked - it's proven. I'd rather see a laser link to a few cameras, that way there's no chance of eave's dropping or man-in-the-middle attacks. Laser is more expensive, but heck it's the Fed Gov't!
Anyway, sounds like some Cisco sh$t in a box. Cool.
Hope that helps shed some light on the darkness. Peace."
