Lanka Network Operators Group (LkNOG) held their first inaugural conference at Galle Face Hotel, Colombo on 20th of October 2017. Paraqum Technologies had the pleasure of being the proud principal sponsor of this remarkable event that opened up new ventures for network operators and network professionals in the country.

LkNOG is a non-profit, community-based initiative that creates a common platform for local organizations to come together and share knowledge and operational best practices. Launch of LkNOG has given Sri Lanka the opportunity to unearth local talent and promote capacity building and knowledge sharing activities locally.

The inauguration event brought together over 100 individuals from all over the country. These network operation professionals from various Internet Service Providers, Telecom Service Providers, Universities and other private and public sectors attended a series of knowledge-sharing sessions and discussions throughout the day.

LkNOG 1 featured the most trending topics like Cybersecurity, IPv6, Network Monitoring and Measurements, DNS security, Internationalised Domain Names (IDNs), Cloud Technology, Next-Generation Wireless Technology, Internet of Things and Number Resources and Policies.

This leap forward as a community is an initiation to revamp the network industry in the country and we at Paraqum are proud to have been a part of the commencement event.
