Princeton, NJ – June 20, 2016 – RCN Business, a communications provider delivering network solutions for data, voice and video, announces today its support of the North American Network Operators Group (NANOG) as a Premium Gold sponsor and connectivity provider for the NANOG 67 Conference, held June 13 to 15 in Chicago. The event took place at the Fairmont Millennium Park in the heart of downtown, offering an opportunity to network with colleagues, learn advanced networking techniques and discover new network applications.
RCN Business provided Internet connectivity services for the June meeting over its wholly-owned and locally managed fiber-rich network to support event participants and staff. The company offered Dedicated Internet Access, along with 24/7 onsite support and proactive network monitoring.
NANOG is an association for Internet engineering and architecture professionals who focus on the technologies and systems that make the Internet function. Hundreds of network engineers and product professionals from major North American carriers, content providers, cloud companies, multi-tenant data centers, hosting companies, and interconnection service providers converge at NANOG’s tri-annual meetings, such as NANOG 67.
“NANOG 67 was the next in a series of important and informative events offered by the organization in order to foster an environment ripe for thoughtful discussion and decision-making,” explains Mike Carrosquilla, SVP of Commercial Services for RCN. “The Internet was the key area of discussion at this event – how to improve it, shape it and identify key trends that will impact it for years to come.
