The Technical Operations Center in New York City houses all of Lifetime’s broadcast operations, post-production and graphics facilities, and the corporate data center. The building is home to leading domestic and international telecommunications providers, enabling the team to implement diverse and redundant terrestrial connectivity to the Ascent Media Network Services' uplink facilities in Tappan, NY, and Glenbrook, CT. It also supports Lifetime’s mission critical TOC infrastructure, “A” and “B” UPS systems, emergency generator capacity and connectivity to the network’s remote disaster recovery facility.
