Mobile technology is not always available to military or government personnel in all environments. Operating in a secure facility requires cellular phones or other mobile devices to be stowed outside the door. Companies are preparing solutions to enable the use of mobile devices in such accredited facilities in ways not seen before.

MTN Government Services, Leesburg, Virginia, recently announced that the company has been awarded a contract supporting the Department of Defense to provide a Re-deployable Secure Operations Center (RSOC). The MTN RSOC will be used by the DoD as a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF). The RSOC is a secure, self-standing rapidly deployable and re- deployable SCIF facility that can be drop-shipped into any environment and assembled within a few days. MTN will provide a turn-key, fully configured SCIF, to include all power, low-voltage and security infrastructure, requiring minimal integration by the customer.
