A challenge with overseas missions is to set up secure and stable broadband connections in the least amount of time possible. Most of the time the location where data is processed and analyzed is far away from the fighter jet runway and helicopter landing pads. This means that the amount of network cabling that needs to be rolled out can run to several kilometers as they need to go around the runways and helicopter landing pads.
