Federal Bureau of Investigation: Information Technology Strategic Plan FY 2010 - 2015   [open pdf - 366KB]

"The FBI [Federal Bureau of Investigation] has a dual mission to enforce federal laws and protect the national security. In fulfilling its mission, the FBI continues to fuse the requirements of the domestic and foreign Intelligence and Law Enforcement Communities to meet the changing national security threats. In parallel, the FBI's Information Technology (IT) capabilities are evolving in order to improve operational effectiveness and enhance organizational flexibility. Modernization and enhancements to the IT infrastructure are necessary to support FBI priorities and fulfill Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and other external mandates and requirements. The FBI requires transformation to the next generation of IT infrastructure, where emerging technologies provide a more resilient and agile environment. The Next Generation Network (NGN) project will upgrade the FBI's Wide Area Network (WAN) from its current Asynchronous Transfer Mode/Frame Relay (ATM/FR) point‐to‐point Permanent Virtual Circuit (PVC) based architecture to one based on Internet Protocol (IP) Multi Protocol Level Switching (MPLS). NGN will modernize the FBI's network infrastructure, aligning it with current industry best practices. NGN will consolidate the four‐tiered Trilogy network design into a common IP based core network capable of supporting integrated IP data, IP voice, IP video services, and other future applications."
