Supporting Network Operator Groups

Network Operator Groups (NOGs) are informal forums that bring together network operators, network engineers and other technical professionals to discuss matters relating to routing, network security, peering and interconnection, and other operational Internet issues. While the forums are generally structured around sharing relevant technical information, they also provide training and other skills development opportunities to the region’s operators.

NOGs promote Internet infrastructure stability, security, and network coherence, and facilitate better Internet accessibility for the community. They are open to all, including students, and are attended by various stakeholders including representatives of ISPs, telcos, mobile operators, CDNs, academia, governments, and cloud, enterprise, and financial organizations.
