    The Network Enterprise Center (NEC) will upgrade Fort McCoy’s network starting June 24.

    Network Modernization–CONUS (NetMod-C) will standardize the network by replacing network switches installed throughout Fort McCoy facilities.

    From June 24 to July 16, NETMOD-C will create a standardized, sustainable enterprise network that will facilitate a faster, more reliable path to unified communications and the soon-to-come Joint Regional Security Stack.

    Upon completion, the network will collapse ARNet and LandWarNet into a single physical Army network, reducing the number of entry/exit points to enhance security. They will still remain separate logistically.

    NEC Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Information Management services will be affected both during survey and deployment due to resource prioritization.

    There will be scheduled network service interruptions during the upgrade. Most buildings will experience a network outages up to one hour, but some may last up to four hours.

    The NEC will do everything possible to minimize outage durations in coordination with unit representatives.

    The NEC will need access to facilities to perform the network upgrades.
    Access is currently being coordinated.

    Direct any comments, concerns, or questions to the NEC or your organization’s IT representative.

    Customers should be prepared for potential delays in computer repairs or troubleshooting tickets through the duration of the project.

    After migration is complete, call the Fort McCoy NetMod hotline at 608-388-3514/3515 if you have post-migration issues, such as connectivity, printers, etc. The hotline is only for NetMod-related issues.
