Network Operation Center

The Network Operation Center (NOC) is the operational center from which the physical and logical network functionality of Welcome Italia is controlled.

Our technical staff perform constant monitoring to forestall failures, anticipate Customers’ requests for technical assistance and reduce service recovery time in case of failure.

Network control

  • an advanced monitoring system, designed and created in-house by our developers, every minute detects traffic volumes of the connections and the status of each Customer’s lines
  • every second the parameters of the lines in quarantine are checked
  • internet traffic is automatically analyzed and divided into types with different priority levels so that the Customer’s working operations do not suffer slowdowns due to low-priority traffic (e.g. operating system updates)
  • in the event of anomalous voice traffic (lengthy calls, suspicious international traffic, etc.) the system automatically informs our operators who contact our Customer by phone with information on the situation

  • within 15 minutes from the opening of the Case, an NOC technician will make a preliminary analysis, classifying it based on the area of competence and its seriousness, for the purpose of establishing its priority and enabling its timely resolution
  • the Case is then taken on by another colleague who identifies and removes the cause of the problem
  • at the end of the process, a colleague from the NOC or from Customer Service checks with the Customer that the problem has been solved to their complete satisfaction
