The Task Force on Network Operation Centres (TF-NOC) brings together NOC managers, engineers, developers, operators, controllers and project managers interested in NOC functions in order to share experiences and knowledge as well as to investigate the possibility of creating best common practices.
NOTE: TF-NOC is changing its official format from a Task Force to a Special Interest Group, therefore it will be called as SIG-NOC. The Stuttgart meeting will be the 12th meeting but the 1st one under the new mandate.
