Network Operation Center (NOC)
A Network Operation Center (NOC) provides critical visibility into your, on premise, hybrid and cloud environments and the applications they’re running without generating excess visual noise. Equipping businesses with the flexibility and depth of coverage required to monitor today’s IT infrastructure and the extensibility needed to handle tomorrow’s.
Network Operations Centers (NOCs) are central locations from which an organization supports its computer network and telecom infrastructure, detects and resolves IT infrastructure incidents, and ultimately ensures data center availability. Sometimes they lie within the data center, sometimes externally. They are typically connected to a high-speed internet connection or directly to the internet backbone in order to provide as much bandwidth as possible.
But regardless of the arrangement, the aim is to maintain 24×7 network and data center availability. That goal can always be achieved—if money is no object. But problems can enter the picture when organizations attempt to achieve it in an affordable fashion.
“The Network Operations Center (NOC) is a state-of-the-art technical facility that houses servers and network equipment to ensure stable and reliable service for University enterprise systems. It is a centralized management center that is capable of identifying, notifying, and repairing problems when they occur and projecting when and where they might occur.” – University of Pittsburgh
