In support of the Army’s Global Combat Support System (GCSS) project to update inventory handling throughout our military’s facilities, Lowry is installing and configuring Aruba Networks wireless systems throughout the country and some offshore locations. This project entails not only the wireless hardware and configuration but also the cabling infrastructure needed to tie the wireless into the Army’s wired networks.
In order to allow a base’s personnel to understand how the wireless system works and to do first level troubleshooting on their own, Lowry has developed a guide for the soldiers to follow. It describes the normal operation and some of the changes they can make and help in ascertaining whether issues they may experience are related to the wireless system or is located elsewhere. It also describes how to create backups of the controller’s configuration files and what to look for in case of electrical power failures and disaster recovery.
Referenced on the front page of this month’s GCSS-Army online newsletter, this guide has become the reference for all Army bases using Aruba Networks wireless system for this important project. If you like to read more about the project or see the guide Click here
