The Sota Operations Centre is located at the heart of a secure science park campus. Kent Science Park was originally developed by Shell as a specialist research centre during the 1980's. The twenty-five acre complex was built to a high technical specification and sensitively landscaped to blend into the surrounding rural countryside. Shell vacated the facility in the early 1990's, and since then it has evolved into a thriving independent science park.

The Network Operations Centre houses technical personnel dedicated to the management, monitoring and maintenance of the Sota technical facilities. This includes the Kent data centres, core network, campus network, and workplace recovery suites, as well as the cloud, backup, telephony and security platforms. 

The technicians, engineers and consultants dedicated to technical support and service delivery also operate from this location, in close proximity to the team responsible for facilities and platforms. The Operations Centre is secured within a razor-wire perimeter fence and benefits from 24x7 manned security, CCTV, and controlled access via a purpose-built security gatehouse.
