Abu-Ghazaleh inaugurates ASREN’s new offices and announces its first Network Operations Center in Amman


Following the successful implementation of its first Point of Presence (PoP) in London, the Arab States Research and Education Network (ASREN) has now implemented its first Network Operations Center (NOC) in ASREN’s new offices at Talal Abu-Ghazaleh University College for Innovation (TAGUCI) in Amman.
ASREN now provides its members of National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) with NOC services to monitor and manage international networks and border gateway protocol for inter-domain peering to ASREN and GÉANT PoPs. ASREN team also offers online and offline support to fix problems and resolve technical issues with ticketing system. 

The establishment of the Network Operations Center came out as a result of cooperation with the European GÉANT network within the framework of the European Union’s co-funded project AfricaConnect3.
ASREN will continue to support its member NRENs and will further work on establishing Cloud Services and a Regional Security Operations Center (SOC). 
HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, Chairman of ASREN said: “We can now provide our NREN communities with advanced services and we plan to provide more services in the very near future, namely Cloud Services. We always thank the European Union for their generous co-funding and GÉANT for their continuous support”.
