Sponsorship Proposal

Bhutan Network Operators Group (btNOG) is an informal group set up to provide an educational and operational forum for Internet network operators and interested professionals/engineers related to the Internet’s technologies and operational practices to discuss matters of mutual interest, exchange technical information and learning, and discuss specific implementation issues, usually through a combination of mailing list and annual meetings. btNOG is open to all ISPs and Internet related organizations in Bhutan and also from around the world. As such it has no owners, just a small group of dedicated individuals who look after the mailing list and organise the regular meetings.

The main objective is educational, but at the same time gives vendors and tech enthusiast a chance to talk about newer technology and products on the sidelines. ICT Community get to talk to each other about experiences, benefiting the entire community.

btNOG specially invites people from the community to contribute through being instructors and sharing experience. Network operators in the country are in nascent stage of development, and all such help will be valuable.
