A focused NOC or Technical Support Center is a dedicated location from where IT / Telecom engineers provide support services for remote monitoring and management of customer network. This primarily includes network devices, servers, storage, backup etc. A NOC or Support facility has to have the right capabilities, environment, technical acumen, processes and backup support plans to ensure continual improvement.
Most Outsourced facilities have their Development as well as support resources well knitted with #WORKFROMHOME tuning for now to ensure deliverables are met as that commitment in workforce plays a significant role in ensuring customers have a 24x7x365 up time on their setup. The monitoring team monitors the endpoints across the infrastructure through specialized monitoring tools which alerts the team through a dashboard on any failure in the customer network. These tools can also be configured to send automated mails and SMS for critical alerts.
Monitoring teams does the primary troubleshooting to resolve the issues and in case of any specialized help, contact the next level of engineers to help remediate the issue.
