Supported by the GlobalNOC at Indiana University

Welcome to the International Research Network Connections Network Operations Center.

The International Research Network Connections Network Operations Center (IRNC NOC) serves as a cooperative point of contact and communications for IRNC network management, providing consolidated network monitoring, reporting, and operational visibility for the IRNC program.  The IRNC NOC facilitates a single set of operational expectations for all IRNC funded infrastructure programs; this enables greater availability of IRNC infrastructure and improves results in troubleshooting multi-domain network issues.  A central data repository created by the IRNC NOC provides critical operational information, monitoring data, and performance metrics in support of NSF funded science and research. 

The IRNC NOC provides support for the following IRNC Backbone and RXP awards:
