Developing a Secure Data and Voice Network



Texas A&M Internet 2 Technology Evaluation Center (ITEC) was recently awarded a $1.1 million grant to develop a secure data and voice network architecture that supports secure landline-to-landline, landline-to-mobile, and mobile-to-mobile communications. The grant is part of the newly launched Secure and Resilient Mobile Network Infrastructure (SRMNI) project, a joint research and development program of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).

Managed by S&T’s Mobile Security R&D Program, the project addresses CISA’s top priorities: securing the mobile supply chain as well as critical mobile network infrastructure, including the newly launched fifth-generation (5G) mobile network.
