The in-house experience in networking and IP telephony ensures that we can offer a service where the standards are constantly monitored.

Hostcomm Network Operations Centre

This is in Leicester and is where the technical support team is based. The network operations centre (NOC) has a 25Mbps fibre leased line which is used to access all of ourservers spread over four main data centres in the UK and Europe. Using our network monitoring applications down time can be minimised because the server health information relating to our infrastructure and client dedicated servers can be monitored 24 x 7 x 365.

The NOC also has a datacentre which is currently undergoing an upgrade to allow Hostcomm to host some services in house.

Performance reviews

Hostcomm continually monitors its support services for areas of weakness so they can be addressed quickly. Hostcomm has a policy of encouraging client loyalty through good service, as apposed to locking them in to long contracts, and on this basis the service must be good. Every three months ticket statistics are analysed for average response times and satisfaction scores so that potential problems can be picked up quickly.
