Simoco Wireless Solutions opens dedicated NOC to keep Heathrow Airport moving


Simoco Wireless Solutions has opened a Network Operations Centre (NOC) at Heathrow, which includes a 24/7 monitoring, troubleshooting and maintenance service for radio networks at the UK’s busiest airport. The NOC has been created to look after a collection of mission-critical communications networks which keep operations within Heathrow running smoothly, and draws on Simoco’s specialist experience in the aviation sector. The NOC covers networks at 26 separate locations around the UK, including; 11 bus depots, the radio communications network on the new Elizabeth Line Crossrail link, two data centres and two separate telematics software platforms, used for tracking vehicles involved in airport operations.

A mixture of digital (DMR) and analogue radio technologies are in place at Heathrow, with equipment provided from a range of different manufacturers, so the capabilities within the NOC are similarly broad. In total, Simoco is supporting around 11,000 devices and 180 separate customers across the UK & Ireland with this Network Operations Centre. The NOC is also being utilised to complete network administration tasks including system statistics reports, freeing up engineering resource to concentrate on mission-critical operations.
