Abstract. In the present work, the installation and the technology applied for the operation of the Hellenic Seismological Network of Crete (HSNC), located in the front of the Hellenic Arc, are presented. The topology, the communication modes (wire and satellite) along with data collection and processing methodologies applied leads to the operation of a new seismological infrastructure in South Aegean, one of the most seismically active regions in Europe.
