CaribNOG 11 Montego Bay, Jamaica
CaribNOG successfully hosted its 11th Regional Gathering in Montego Bay, Jamaica from April 20th to 22nd 2016. CaribNOG 11 was made possible with the kind support of our partners and sponsors: the Caribbean Telecommunications Union (CTU), the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), the Packet Clearing House (PCH), the Internet Society, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, ArkiTechs Inc. and The BrightPath Foundation.
We also have to thank the growing CaribNOG Community for its continued support. CaribNOG 11 marked the first time remote hubs were set up in Barbados and Dominica to allow CaribNOG-ers in those countries to participate in the sessions. It was great to receive feedback and host presentations from members who could not make it to Montego Bay. We expect Remote Hubs to be a standard feature of CaribNOG meetings going forward.
CaribNOG is a not-for-profit, independent, technical community that providing an important regional forum for building technical capacity, sharing industry experiences and promoting relevant solutions for advancing network engineering in the Caribbean. CaribNOG has built a reputation as an influential forum where computer network technicians and technology professionals share knowledge and experiences and participate in expert-led, high-tech training and hands-on technical workshops.
