On June 4 and 5, Moscow’s MSK-IX is hosting ENOG 15, the telecommunications industry’s largest regional forum, which this year attracted more than 600 participants from 26 countries. The conference is held by RIPE NCC, one of the five Regional Internet Registries. The participants include leading international and regional experts, network operators, service providers and other representatives of the Internet community. The mission of the conference is to exchange experience and discuss core operational issues as well as share ideas on advancement of the global internet in the region.
