FBI showcases Trilogy, information sharing

Senior FBI officials today pointed to the recently completed Trilogy network and their progress in creating a data warehouse as the leading projects in their IT overhaul. Wilson Lowery, executive assistant director for administration, said the March 28 deployment of the first phase of the Trilogy project at 591 sites included fielding 22,000 workstations, 2,612 switches and routers, 622 Ethernet LANs and 291 servers at FBI locations worldwide.
