Belize to host sixth CaribNOG Regional Meeting

The Caribbean Network Operators Group, (CaribNOG) will stage its sixth regional meeting in Belize in September.

CaribNOG is a not-for-profit, independent, technical community that provides a regional forum for building technical capacity and promoting relevant solutions for advancing network engineering in the Caribbean.

CaribNOG coordinator Bevil Wooding described the group as a unique forum for regional technology professionals to share experiences and build practical skills. He said CaribNOG events draw industry experts from across the region and international technical community, thus allowing regional participants to benefit from the expertise of some of the top minds in the global industry.

“One of the main goals of the volunteer-based group is to build a vibrant regional community of technical experts committed to designing, building and supporting the technology infrastructure needed to take the region into the future,” Wooding stated.

“At CaribNOG 6 regional technology practitioners will have the opportunity to share experiences and participate in hands-on technical workshops in areas including advanced routing and network design techniques, computer network security, Internet Exchange Point design and management, IPv6 Deployment, and DNS security and management.”

CaribNOG is supported by grants and volunteer assistance from regional and international organizations including the Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU), Packet Clearing House, the American Registry for Assigned Names and Numbers (ARIN), the Internet Society (ISOC), LACNIC, the BrightPath Foundation, and the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
