STC starts construction of new NOC
The NOC is an important investment in the future of technology in Saudi Arabia, says Biyari.

STC has started construction on what it says will be the largest network operations centre (NOC) in the Middle East.

The telco is developing the NOC as part of its strategy for digital transformation and to enable digital services in alignment of Kingdom's Vision 2030.

The centre will be located at the King Abdul Aziz Telecom Complex in Al-Mursalat district of Riyadh.

Khaled Biyari, CEO STC Group, said: "The new national network control centre is an important investment in the future of technology in our country. STC has prepared itself in the best way to serve the company's customers from corporate and individuals."

Biyari expected the project to be completed during 2019, thanking all those who participated in the work inside and outside STC.

In October, STC signed a contract with Al-Latifia Trading and Contracting Co. to establish a four-story control centre, equipped with the latest information technology and high-resolution digital display systems to enhance operational standards along with electronic surveillance and protection systems to ensure the safety of equipment and personnel within the building.

The centre will increase the efficiency of customer and business services and enhance the company's position as a regional provider of Internet, data and communications services.
