A network operations center (NOC) is a system or centralized structure to monitor, supervise, and maintain a network and the devices connected to that network. A NOC is a fully functional area that controls detailed monitoring information and visual status of associated devices and networks.

Services offered in a NOC includes storage and backup management, email management, voice and video traffic management, antivirus scanning, and policy enforcement. It also provides IT services to companies which require regular monitoring of network equipment such as switches, servers, firewalls, laptops, desktops, and storage systems. All companies depend on their key technology systems which are fully operational. For regular updates, troubleshooting and software installations are important for a company. NOC services provide back-end support and maintenance to the companies for technical issues and to deal with system problems. It also offers call center services to end-users to resolve network issues in the system. NOC provides 24/7 staffed high quality support to companies to reduce organizational risk and liability. Several companies are investing in infrastructure to build their in-house NOC for security purposes with high quality of services.
