While its network operations center at the time was but 10 years old, AT&T sprung for a new one in Bedminster, N.J. According to AT&T’s Web site, it featured “a 75-screen video wall where computer-driven support systems provided information on multiple layers and categories of network activity. Managers used computer systems and terminals to find detailed information on any switch or route in the network. They then used those same systems to issue instructions to any place in the network.” It has subsequently been replaced. … If you have ever been inside one of these, they are a sight to behold.
