Supporting Network Operator Groups

Network Operator Groups (NOGs) are forums held either annually or bi-annually for Internet operators and builders from the region and worldwide to meet to discuss core operational issues, share information about new technologies and best current practices and build capacity.

NOGs provide an important role in the Internet community as they enable Internet infrastructure stability, security, and network coherence and further, facilitate better Internet accessibility for the community. They are open to all, including women and students, and are attended by various stakeholders including representatives of ISPs, telcos, mobile operators, CDNs, academia, and governments and cloud, enterprise, and financial organizations.

Topics usually revolve around network interactions and operator collaboration in each economy or region and include IPv6, the DNS, network security, peering, routing, and so forth.
