Remote Operation Centers provides the flexibility for the collaborators to take shifts remotely. To be a certified ROC one must fulfill the prerequisites documented in the DocDB-9968-V1. This documentations provides a full explanation of the hardware and software requirements, a step-by-step installation procedure and how the certification process works.

h2. Communication protocol during shift transitions

Since remote shifts are different from shift performed at the Control Room, the hand-on and hand-off must be performed in a different way. This is a quick step by step guide of the protocol. A more detailed explanation about these steps can be found in "DocDB 9842-v1":http://minos-docdb.fnal.gov:8080/cgi-bin/RetrieveFile?docid=9968;filename=ROC_documentation.pdf;version=1.

* The oncoming remote shifter calls the current local (or remote) shifter before the end of the current shift to discuss the status of the experiment. It is strongly recommended that the oncoming shifter also checks the Logbook and the Memopad. (Ignore this step if there was no previous shift, but checking the Logbook and MemoPad before the start of the shift is strongly recommended and could avoid some problems.)
