Network Operation Centers, commonly known as NOCs, are primarily used by large businesses, universities and the government in order to oversee complex networking environments. NOCs are often confused with data centers, which are significantly different. Click here for a refresher on data center tiers. A NOC is an operations base in a dedicated, secure location where a technical team is monitoring, managing and maintaining customers’ networks. Companies and organizations that require a high demand for security and monitoring will most likely have an internal NOC in place - or leverage that of an outsourced provider - in order to maximize efficiency.
What Your NOC Does For You
NOCs play an integral role in keeping a network healthy and thriving. They have varied responsibilities, some of which include:
Analyzing and troubleshooting problems
Communicating with on-site technicians
Network, security & telecommunications monitoring
Incident response & communications management
Why A NOC Is Essential
With technology advancing at a rapid speed, security breaches and attacks are becoming much more prevalent concerns. A quality NOC will keep constant watch over your organization’s systems to guarantee that problems will be caught immediately, reducing the likelihood of mismanaged information or security incidents.
