The meeting will be hosted by Cisco Systems. NANOG conferences provide a forum for the coordination and dissemination of technical information related to large-scale (i.e., national/international) Internet backbone networking technologies and operational practices. NANOG meetings, held three times each year, include two days of short presentations, plus afternoon/evening tutorial sessions. Meetings are informal, with an emphasis on relevance to current backbone engineering practices. The conference draws over 600 participants, mainly consisting of engineering staff from large national service providers, and members of the research and education community. The meeting will be held at the Oakland Marriott City Center.
