APNIC attended the 2015 New Zealand Operator’s Group (NZNOG) meeting in Rotorua, New Zealand from 26 to 30 January 2015.

NZNOG holds regular conferences that bring together local network operators to share and exchange technical information on issues affecting the Internet.

A number of quality presentations on topics such as DDoS, CDN usage, routing and IXPs were delivered by members of the New Zealand and international technical community. You can view the conferences sessions in their entirety via the streaming video.

APNIC activities:

The presentation explored the relationship between routing and routers and looked at how increasing routing table sizes and wire transmission speeds impact the design and cost of routing equipment.
