Network operators gathered at UKNOF50 this September to exchange insights on new challenges and developments for today's Internet. Here's a quick overview of the event and links to the useful and important talks that took place on the day.
About 100 people met in London at UKNOF50 on Thursday, 22 September 2022. Ten people participated online and engaged with industry colleagues using our Mattermost server. This was another hybrid event with all speakers presenting in our London venue. 11 speakers presented on a variety of Internet operations topics. We also programmed plenty of time for people to speak and network with each other.
We have published recordings of the talks from UKNOF50, so you can review the details of talks you enjoyed or catch up on a talk you missed.
