Meeting Connectivity

NANOG Meetings, and the organization itself, are largely supported by sponsors from the Internet operations and engineering community. A variety of excellent branding and interaction opportunities are available. That being said, NANOG Meeting sessions are strictly juried by the NANOG Program Committee and sponsored speaker placements are not available.

Network Topology

NANOG meeting staff will install a network to provide 802.1x wireless access in all meeting rooms, and common areas of the hotel venue when possible. The NANOG network topology will vary from venue to venue, but will generally follow the network diagram.
