APNIC supported and participated at the first Mongolian Network Operators Group (mnNOG 1) meeting in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, from 16 to 20 September 2019.
mnNOG 1 came about after an official meeting in March 2019, where the Program Committee, Coordination Team and mailing list (hosted by APNIC) were established. APNIC’s Training Manager, Tashi Phuntsho, participated remotely in this meeting and shared his experiences helping to establish NOGs in the region.
The mnNOG coordination team recognized APNIC as a Founding Partner of mnNOG 1, and thanked APNIC for continuing to provide support.
