Wi-Fi, 4G LTE hits battlefield

The Army fielded the Tactical Network Transmissions, known as TNT, equipment package for the first time to the 86th Expeditionary Signal Battalion, to support the Network Integration Evaluation, or NIE, 14.2 at Fort Bliss, Texas. NIE 14.2 was the seventh in the Army's series of semi-annual evaluations designed to integrate and mature the tactical network in a relevant operational environment.

TNT also includes a smaller, more transportable line-of-sight radio system, called "TRILOS," which significantly increases throughput over legacy radios increasing throughput from 16 Mbps to 200 Mbps.
