DESCRIPTION:

The Installation Information Infrastructure Modernization Program (I3MP) supports the warfighter through information technology, infrastructure modernization and lifecycle management of the Army’s CONUS Installation Campus Area Networks (ICAN) and strategic command centers. It has no ACAT level because it is not executed as a Defense Acquisition Program. However, if it were, it would rival many ACAT I programs due to its overall lifecycle cost and the length of
its mission.

I3MP provides a robust and scalable networked information infrastructure that allows migration to a network-centric, knowledge-based operation, and enhances connectivity between forward-deployed forces with CONUS installation infrastructure. It is a part of the Joint effort to improve and protect LandWarNet by enhancing the infrastructure for better efficiency and effectiveness of the network and Army interoperability across DoD. Ultimately the program builds network capacity, simplifies and standardizes ICAN, and establishes a foundation for new capabilities. This involves the conversion of base, post, camp and station voice circuits to Internet Protocol, transitioning from Time Distance Multiplexing to Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology, and a connection to the Defense Information Systems Agency’s Enterprise VoIP architecture.

BENEFIT TO THE WARFIGHTER

I3MP provides the communications connectivity that allows the warfighter to access and utilize information technology applications.
