AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T), like any other carrier, is struggling to cope with competition in its industry. Smaller competitors such as T-Mobile US Inc (NASDAQ:TMUS) are causing serious disruptions by waging price wars and dismantling legacy contract plans. But away from the public eye, there is away AT&T wants to remain the leader of telecom industry.

In the sleepy suburb of Bedminster in New Jersey, AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) literally watches the world at its global network operations center. It is the place AT&T engineers monitor the company’s network and it is a kind of the brain of AT&T’s network system. From the center, AT&T ensures that customers are able to connect properly at all times.

Keeping an eye on security

Besides ensuring service uptime and fixing network issues as fast as they arise, the center is also dedicated to security monitoring. The engineers there keep a close eye on unusual activities that may be indicators of a hacker or a group of them trying to cause network problems in order to attack. AT&T technicians can nip activities of hackers in the bud to ensure that customers aren’t impacted.

Keeping digital life up and running

It is said that without AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T)’s global network operations center, it would be almost impossible for the company to support its vast digital operations. For example, problems such as data loss and calls dropping would be like a norm.

Critical assignment

It is as though everyone at AT&T’s network brain has a critical assignment to undertake and there is almost no room for error. To get a sense of how critical the global operations center is, some 100 petabytes of traffic data is processed through the center every single day. Now, that’s mindboggling traffic.

Going overseas

Through its global network operations center, AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) is worried about nothing as it expands overseas. The company believes that as much as pricing pressure is mounting domestically and possibly abroad, keeping a watchful eye over its network should ensure quality services that customers would be glad to pay for.
