NEW NETWORK OPERATIONS CENTER
ZochNet Purchased for the next NOC
Roger Turner, Chief Financial Officer of Unified Communications, Inc. (dba ZochNet), commented on the purchase. “We felt this property was
essential to the continued growth of our company’s operations and services,” explained Turner. “This acquisition is a major development for the company, as it will become the corporate headquarters for ZochNet.” Turner announced that the building will be renamed as the “ZochNet Technology Center”. The property also includes a tower that ZochNet had been leasing ever since the company’s inception in 2010.
Turner stated that renovations will start in 2018, and the facility will be designed as a secured Network Operations Center, known as a NOC, to manage the company’s entire cable and wireless systems 24 hours a day 7 days a week, 365 days a year. “This is also significant in that this location will become our main fiber node to ultimately deliver high speed fiber directly to the businesses and homes of Giddings,” said Turner.
The current Blue Moon location at the intersection of Hwy. 77 and Hwy. 21 in Lincoln, will continue to be used as the Field Operations Service Center, as only customer service and administration staff will move to the new Giddings location.
