South Asian Network Operators Group (SANOG)- 38 meeting is happening from tomorrow in Nepal. It is a 5-day event that is happening in Nepal where various IT professionals and network experts will be gathering in a single forum and discussing topics related to networks and information systems.
What is the South Asian Network Operators Group (SANOG)?
South Asian Network Operators Group (SANOG) is a non-profit forum for data network operators in the South Asian region. It was started to bring together the operators for educational as well as co-operation for the betterment of technological utilities.
It provides a regional forum to discuss operational issues and technologies of interest to data operators in the South Asian Region.
This was consistent with long-standing norms like NANOG in North America, RIPE NCC Meetings in Europe, and APRICOT in Asia. The gathering will serve as a regional forum to talk about operational concerns and technology that data operators in the South Asian Region can more easily access. Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka are all included in the concept.
The inaugural SANOG Meeting took place in Kathmandu in January 2003 in conjunction with the CAN IT Conference 2003, the yearly gathering of the Computer Association of Nepal.
