I would like to introduce you to PTNOG - Portuguese Network Operators Group.
PTNOG is an an open group of people and organisations that operate the Internet
infrastructure in Portugal. This forum has the mission to exchange information,
technical experiences and have open discussion of all matters related to the
Internet in Portugal. The intention is to increase cooperation between the
various networks operating in Portugal in addition to welcoming participation
from international network operators.
This group was founded by Denesh Bhabuta (UKNOF, DNS-OARC), Eduardo Duarte
(DNS.PT), Carlos Friaças (FCCN) and João Damas (ESNOG, ISOC-ES, APNIC), who
work in the Internet industry and have cooperated in various international
forums. The absence of a forum in Portugal to bring together network engineers
and operators to meet, interact, discuss and exchange knowledge to improve the
Internet, prompted them to form PTNOG.
We are organising the first meeting of the Portuguese Network Operators group -
PTNOG1, taking place in Lisbon during the afternoon of 10 October 2017 (venue
to be confirmed).
The draft agenda (subject to change) is published on the PTNOG1 page:
