Quantico hooks up to NMCI

Marine Corps Base Quantico has become the first Corps base to begin the transition to the Navy-Marine Corps Intranet.

The Virginia site awarded a task order for 6,786 unclassified NMCI computer seats and services to contractor EDS Corp. and its subcontractors on the Information Strike Force.

The first of three transition phases began Feb. 10.

Strike Force validation teams are collecting data about the base's IT hardware and security and counting the legacy applications. Teams also are assessing the base area network, LAN, and desktop PC and server environments.

EDS will assume responsibility for operation and maintenance of the Quantico network on March 24, entering the second phase of transition. The base will cut over completely to NMCI on May 5 in the third and final phase.

Following Quantico's transition to NMCI, the National Capital Region including Marine Corps headquarters will start the process, officials said.

NMCI ultimately will link voice, video and data communications at more than 300 Navy and Marine Corps installations.
