INOC LogoNORTHBROOK, IL, DECEMBER 4, 2013INOC, LLC, a 24×7 Network Operations Center (NOC) and global provider of NOC monitoring, reporting and support services, announces the completion of a temporary NOC for the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA®) 2013 Annual Meeting, taking place December 1-6, 2013 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL.  The NOC supports the RSNA network (RSNAnet), providing 100% network uptime as well as critical availability for the duration of the six-day conference.

The RSNA is an international society of radiologists, medical physicists and other medical professionals with more than 53,000 members from 140 countries across the globe.  Its Annual Meeting is the world’s premier event in medical imaging, bringing together more than 700 exhibitors and over 55,000 attendees to educate the market about the industry’s latest technological innovations and scientific advancements. INOC has built a temporary NOC at the convention facility to monitor and manage the RSNA network, which is backed by INOC’s primary and Disaster Recovery NOCs in Madison, WI and Chicago, IL.  The NOC leverages INOC’s NOC Operations Platform and implements detailed processes and procedures for monitoring and managing RSNAnet 24×7.  

The network, exclusively built and monitored by INOC, delivers premium Ethernet services using a flexible Juniper virtual switching fabric along with equipment from Extreme, Fortinet and Blue Coat.  A virtual server infrastructure using VMware is used to run DNS, DHCP and a variety of additional monitoring tools, including NetFlow and sFlow tools to support both remote and on-site incident response teams.  RSNAnet spans 120 network closets covering two million square feet of floor space and meeting rooms.

“As the world’s most important annual event in medical imaging, maintaining optimal network availability is critical to the daily activities as well as the overall success of RSNA’s Annual Meeting,” says Steve Drew, Assistant Executive Director, RSNA.  “From providing access to meeting programs and exhibit and session information to enabling the efficient exchange of radiological images, INOC delivers critical uptime for our network – creating a safe, reliable and always-on networking environment for both RSNA and its members.”  

“RSNA’s temporary NOC is strategically designed and purpose-built to provide 100% uptime and high performance to support all facets of RSNA’s networking activity.  Furthermore, our experienced engineers monitor the network 24×7, ensuring rapid identification and resolution of any issues before they can become service-affecting,” adds Ben Ludeman, Manager of Network Services, INOC.  “We understand the technical requirements needed to fulfill the unique uptime needs of the RSNA; with INOC, the society can be confident that its network will not go down.”
