Olameter’s Network Operations Center (“NOC”) monitors and controls the core systems, the data hubs and edge devices, the telecommunications networks and the personal electronic devices used by Olameter personnel, utility clients and contractors.
Our Network Operations Center is based in Aurora, ON. It operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
