Despite a setback to its Sentinel case-management system, the FBI is deploying a high-speed network, new Office-based PCs, and other infrastructure improvements. InformationWeek is reporting that the agency has completed an agency-wide upgrade to its network infrastructure and is six months into deployment of a new Microsoft Office-based PC environment in its field offices. In addition, the FBI's new case-management system, Sentinel, has begun Phase 2 pilot testing, despite delays that have pushed Sentinel's completion into 2011.
