Internet Network Operators' Groups


Internet Network Operators' Groups

Internet Network Operators' Groups are informal groups which exist to provide forums for Internet network operators to discuss matters of mutual interest, usually through a combination of mailing lists and annual conferences. Although these groups have no formal power, their members are typically influential members of the Internet Service Provider, Internet Exchange Point, Regional Internet Registry and other network operations communities and discussions within these groups are often influential in the overall process of running the Internet.

NANOG, the North American Network Operators' Group, is the prototypical example of such a group.
