Switzerland has joined the Combined Federated Battle Labs Network (CFBLNet) as a mission partner in support of its activities related to Federated Mission Networking (FMN) and coalition exercises.
Switzerland applied to participate in interoperability verification and validation initiatives and to cooperate with partners in bi- and multilateral activities, using the unique global federated network infrastructure. CWIX2015 will be the first venue where Switzerland will be participating in the new role.
CFBLNet is open to 35 Mission partners: all 28 NATO Nations, Austria, Australia, Finland, New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland and the NATO organization. It provides a unique and cost-effective global federated network infrastructure capability for the mission partners through reuse of the global assets in support of its users.
The CFBLNet core node for European nations, NATO Nations and the NATO organizations is operated by the NCI Agency Independent Verification and Validation Service Line (IV&V SL).
