After being postponed, the NOG finally took place in May! It was a great couple of days starting with Dan Faulknor’s Bootstraping an ISP and finishing with Liam Farr’s Starlink Hacks – Hardware is
Hard Easy. With a good turnout, we managed to catch up with a few members and handed out some of our swag!
IAA Peering Engineer, Aaron Chidiac, gave a fantastic, detailed update on our network, including details of our plan to upgrade AKL-IX and build the western path; he even threw in a few jokes for our entertainment! Our Chair, Chris Browning, followed on with an interesting update, where he discussed the potential new educational ISP and asked for industry feedback on the potential project.
