Pentagon lights up its first Wi-Fi network through $36 million in IT savings

It may or may not have been the intent of the Pentagon’s World War II-era designers, but the mostly concrete structure of world’s most famous five-sided building makes it a black hole for radio frequencies, including cell signals, making it hard to achieve the kind of mobile work and communication that’s commonplace in most 21st century offices.

That’s changed in just the last couple months. DoD now has a fully-functional Wi-Fi network throughout much of the building, something that was unimaginable to the Pentagon’s own IT experts as recently as a few years ago because of cybersecurity concerns.
