SANOG is convened with a mission to bring together operators for educational purposes and to facilitate cooperation. SANOG provides a regional forum to discuss operational issues and technologies of interest to data operators in the South Asian Region. The main objective is educational, but at the same time gives vendors a chance to talk to engineers about newer technology and products on the sidelines. Engineers get to talk to each other about their experiences, to the benefit of the entire community. The Internet Society partners with SANOG in a number of initiatives and also serves as a sponsor of the organization, providing funding for the SANOG Fellowship Programme.
