Only in Iraq: World's Largest Secure Satellite VOIP Networkposted by MR WAVETHEORY at 2/09/2007 09:08:00 AM
A ceremony was recently held in Iraq to transfer authority over the IC2N from its US-based developers to the Iraq Ministry of the Interior (MOI), as announced by The Civilian Police Assistance Training Team (CPATT).
Blue Ridge Networks has announced the success of its high-assurance devices in building strong authentication and encryption into the world's largest secure VoIP network, the satellite-based Iraq Command and Control Network (IC2N).
As the world's largest fully meshed secure VoIP network, the IC2N has provided secure and non-secure voice and data services to the Iraqi MOI for more than two years. The project first started in November 2004 with the objective of connecting the major cities of Iraq with a private communications system to support the Interim Iraqi Elections in January 2005.
It's quite amazing how government contracts can spur innovation in out of the way places.
