"IRO (Internal Rules of Operation)" or "LON (Local Operating Network)"


Explanation:
I would not guarantee the answer, but in my view this is the closest possibility. "IRO" is the acronym for "Internal Rules of Operation" and the Italian equivalent is "ROI" ("Regolamento Operativo Interno"), according to EUTERPE (European Terminology Database: Abbreviations). EUTERPE provides the equivalent of this term in eleven languages. However, the corresponding acronyms are given only in six languages and none of them is Spanish. Otra posibilidad sería "Red Operativa Interna" en el sentido de "red (de área)local" (RAL = LAN = Local Area Network or LON = Local Operating Network). Hopefully this can help you, together with a bit of help from the context.
