From a definition point of view, a GNOC is nothing but a NOC (Network Operations Center) that operates for multiple networks across various geographies from one central location. What it really means is a vision straight out of a sci-fi movie that catapults us to a world of advanced technologies. It means that a network operator located in Texas can ensure seamless connectivity for a user based in China! Excited?
GNOC connects with telecom networks, Operation Support Systems, Element Management Systems, and multiple NOCs and operates out of one centralized location. It works as a large delivery center for network support, fulfillment and readiness. All alarms, customer complaints, service requests flow into the GNOC as inputs, engineers at the GNOC process the inputs and generate corresponding outputs. With a GNOC, a network provider can achieve scale and improve service efficiency, quality and flexibility. Let’s look at how business benefits from a GNOC:
With so many upsides lined up for a GNOC, there is little or no space for network providers to think otherwise than invest in one. Now that means a huge scope opening up for providers for all the support they need; communications, security, data storage and so on. A GNOC as hi-tech and gargantuan as a NASA control room in Houston, will need the support from the best in class technology and service providers. Only then can users look forward to seamlessly connectivity, at any point of the globe. Exciting times indeed!
