Network Operation Center (NOC)

 

Although Network Operation Centers have been around for decades, we have seen them become more abundant with the push for Cloud and Colocation services.  A NOC is a network management center in which a network is managed through a computer, telecommunications, or satellite networks.

Network Operation Centers are implemented in organizations that necessitate complex networking environments and require high availability.

  • Cloud / Colocation Providers

  • Government Agencies

  • Universities

  • Telecommunications / Business Organization

 

Network Operation Centers can serve many purposes, from troubleshooting to providing a constant flow of communication to technicians.  Whatever the instance, Network Operations Centers (NOC) have procedures in place based on a hierarchy set of guidelines in order to remediate the issue and alert the proper technicians and stakeholders.  It is also likely they will have a sufficient Uninterruptible Power Supply and redundancy to prevent against catastrophes that cannot be anticipated.

  • Incident Response

  • Network Monitoring

  • Communications Management

  • Reporting Problems

Are all functions the Network Operation Center will serve.  Like a Control Room, or Command Center, a NOC will have characteristics that make it unique to its core purpose.  It is highly critical to design and build according to these requirements.
