INOC Joins Allied Fiber’s Dark Fiber Community

NOC Support Services Enable Reliable and Efficient Fiber Services

Northbrook, IL – December 6, 2010 - INOC, a 24x7 Network Operations Center (NOC) and global provider of outsourced Network Operating Center (NOC) monitoring, reporting and support services for Carriers, today announces it has joined Allied Fiber’s Dark Fiber Community. The Dark Fiber Community is an online vendor directory that mirrors the fiber eco-system with participants ranging from fiber technology and equipment manufacturers to infrastructure providers and service vendors. INOC’s participation reinforces that remote network monitoring remains a critical component to delivering reliable dark and lit fiber services. Since September, Allied Fiber, the sponsor of the TMCNet online resource, has successfully recruited more than 35 companies to participate in the Dark Fiber Community.

“High demand for bandwidth services is forcing rapid innovation in the fiber world. Adoption of these new ideas requires market confidence and there is no better way to foster that than to bring the fiber community together to collectively educate the end-user,” says Prasad Ravi, chief executive officer at INOC. “INOC is honored to participate in the Dark Fiber Community and embraces Allied Fiber’s vision of an 'all access' network or community that makes information on advanced fiber solutions readily available to all end-users.”

INOC monitors and supports optical networks for several leading Tier 2 and 3 carriers including the top 10 Cable MSOs in the United States. INOC’s customized NOC monitoring solutions support a wide range of optical network technologies such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), 10 Gigabit SONET, OCx ATM, any protocol – SONET, Ethernet, FibreChannel – over DWDM, GPON, and new and emerging technologies such as MPLS, PBB, and OTN. As service providers explore and experiment with new colocation elements such as container data centers or other physical hotel spaces, INOC’s NOC remotely monitors the infrastructure, security elements, physical space and electronics to ensure performance and provides support services to ensure availability and performance.

“The Dark Fiber Community is an exciting new resource that not only matches network buyers with sellers,” states Hunter Newby, CEO of Allied Fiber, “but also acts as an educational platform for organizations that are looking to build their own networks. We are pleased to have INOC to help build the knowledge base of this community by providing relevant, useful information and technical expertise. The Dark Fiber Community is the type of free neutral environment which will stimulate continued open discussion and drive industry growth.”
