The Pacific Network
PacNOG was established initially as a mailing list
for ISP operations engineers in the Pacific region who
participated in the ISP Routing Workshop held prior to the APNIC
18 conference in Nadi, Fiji in August 2004.
With the ongoing travel restrictions due to the covid-19 pandemic,
PacNOG 28 and PacNOG 29 this year are both being planned as Virtual
The planned dates are:
- PacNOG 28: 29th June to 5th July 2021
- PacNOG 29: 29th November to 3rd December 2021
The PacNOG coordinating team hopes that we can resume with
in-person events in 2022.
