Omani operator Nawras has launched a new network operations centre (NOC) in Bausher as part of its network “turbocharging” programme.

The new NOC, which replaces the previous site in Ghubra, is equipped with the latest monitoring technology.

The new data centre has been fitted with the most modern security features to avoid damage or service downtime during extreme weather and can withstand severe weather conditions including earthquakes and category five cyclones.

From the monitoring base, Nawras engineers will be able to remotely perform a health check on every site in the country.

Wolfgang Wemhoff, CTO, Nawras, said: “The new data centre will control Nawras network technology by using the most up to date monitoring system to secure consistent high performance and maintain coverage across the country, 24-hours a day, all year round.

“The project itself has taken three months to complete and from this ultra modern site we are now in the position to begin operations and better serve our customers, with a special focus on business customer support.”

The site will host many telecom experts dedicated to ensuring the network operates smoothly and with the ability to remotely control other switch buildings in the various Governorates of the Sultanate.
