Ensuring the president can communicate ‘anywhere, anytime, by any means with anyone in the world.’

The White House Communications Agency has a “Presidential Communications Vision 2020” that includes developing a “wireless ecosystem” so the president of the United States can communicate “anywhere, anytime, by any means with anyone in the world.”

Alas, not much detailed info on all this, except for a few facts that the wireless ecosystem will be embedded into systems to support presidential trips and includes secure Wi-Fi and cellular service as well as newfangled, super secure mobile hardware – and we have a president right now who loves mobile gadgets.
