The Marine Corps has recently launched an innovative initiative known as the Marine Corps Enterprise Network (MCEN) Planning Yard (MPY). The MCEN is the Marine Corps network of networks and approved interconnected network segments. It's comprised of the logical and physical infrastructure necessary to provide end to end communications from the supporting establishment to the forward deployed forces. The MPY implements a structured approach that facilitates the maintenance of the MCEN through rigorous configuration management while enabling a technical evaluation process of all proposed hardware and software changes to determine the impact of those changes to the MCEN.
