NANOGMark your calendars for Feb. 8 to 10: The North American Network Operators’ Group (NANOG) is taking its premium network conference—NANOG 66—to sunny San Diego.

The recurring NANOG conference is a top destination for product staff and core engineers in the North American carrier space, as well as for content providers, multitenant data centers, hosting and cloud companies and interconnection service providers. The venue provides an excellent opportunity for attendees to discover new networking skills and applications, and to brush up on all of the latest policy issues impacting businesses today.

NANOG 66 will offer educational tracks, tutorials and quality presentations from the NANOG Program Committee on important topics such as IPv6, distributed denial of service (DDoS) mitigation and global peering, to name a few. What’s more, NANOG 66 will provide participants several opportunities to socialize with business associates and leaders from across the networking industry. There will be a welcome reception hosted on Sunday, Feb. 7 by Resolve Systems, followed by the much-anticipated Beer n’ Gear event on Tuesday, Feb. 9. Facebook will also host a social event on Wednesday, Feb. 10.

This upcoming NANOG event is made possible in large part by Console, an IIX company, which will serve as the local host along with connectivity sponsor AT&T. Console and AT&T will be joined by diamond sponsors Microsoft, ADDREX, Verisign and NTT Communications. Other noteworthy sponsors include Google and Netflix (platinum) and Windstream (gold).

According to Executive Director of NANOG Betty Burke, NANOG 66 is an enriching event that will provide a great deal of value for anyone who strives to keep abreast of the changing Internet landscape.

“Every industry stakeholder who is invested in the performance and accessibility of the ever-evolving Internet finds, in our conferences, endless opportunities to enhance their business and knowledge base, and returns to their organization with new and profound insights,” she said.
