How does DCN support my network?

DCN has a state-of-the-art network operations center (NOC) located in Bismarck, ND. The NOC is staffed by highly skilled technicians on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Customer networks are proactively monitored to detect and resolve problems.

I have a branch office in Phoenix, Arizona. How can DCN connect to my out-of-state location?

DCN has established Network to Network Interface (NNI) connections with multiple regional and national carriers. As a result, you can extend your network anywhere in the country or the world. DCN will still be your single point of contact for ordering, troubleshooting and billing issues.

If I have network problems, do I call DCN or my local service provider?

The DCN Network Operations Center (NOC) is your only contact for reporting service issues. Call 800-296-5956 any time, any day of the year.

If multiple service providers are involved in delivering my circuit, can I still get a single bill from DCN?

DCN is your single point of contact for all work: quoting, ordering, provisioning, repairing, and billing.

What do you mean by saying DCN has redundant internet access?

DCN connects to several Tier 1 providers in both Bismarck and Fargo via direct fiber. Should the Tier 1 providers in Bismarck suffer a service outage, DCN automatically reroutes Internet traffic across its fiber ring to the Fargo providers. Internet traffic is rerouted and there is typically little-to-no noticeable downtime.
