The North-East Italy Seismic Network OX includes all the stations before belonging to short-period seismometric network of Friuli-Venezia Giulia and of Veneto (FV) and the broad-band seismometric network of North-Eastern Italy (NI). It is managed within a collaboration among OGS and the Civil Protections of Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto Regions. This network includes a total of 40 stations, of which 16 short-period, 22 broad-band and 21 accelerometres. The stations are installed mainly in mountainous or piedmont good-quality, low-noise sites.

The short-period stations are equipped with a three-component Lennartz LE-3D seismometer; one with a Mark L4C 1-Hz vertical seismometer installed in a 100 meter deep borehole. The other stations are equipped with both a broad-band seismometer and an accelerometer.

Data of all the stations are collected in an acquisition and storage system based on the BRTT Antelope software package, which allows an easy integration in near real time with the data centers of Austria and Slovenia.
