Air Force experimenting with commercial 4g wireless networks

The Air Force wants to know if commercial cellular networks might be the way forward for its wireless communications needs. The service is trying to collapse several of its legacy wireless networks that it says are becoming too costly and too cumbersome to operate. At Langley Air Force Base, the Command and Control Integration Center has just started testing the 4g wireless networks of the four largest national cellular carriers. They’re also testing next generation handheld devices running both Android and Apple’s iOS.
