Navy opens third NMCI center in Hawaii

Today in Hawaii, the Navy is opening its third network operations center to support the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet.

Seventy-five employees at the Hawaii NOC on Ford Island will manage network traffic throughout the region and will monitor NMCI servers, routers and networks. The center will also monitor intrusion attempts, Navy officials said.

Navy projects that the Hawaii facility will eventually grow to more than 200 civilian, enlisted and contract workers.

The Navy also has opened NOCs in Norfolk, Va., and San Diego to support the NMCI program.

So far, under the $6.9 billion contract, Electronic Data Systems Corp. has cut over about 59,000 seats to the NMCI environment and has authority to take over 90,000 more. Ultimately, NCMI is intended to link more than 400,000 desktop PCs across the United States, Puerto Rico, Iceland and Cuba.
