NZNOG is the New Zealand Network Operators’ Group – an online community of network operators, predominantly in the Internet and Online Services area.

NZNOG has no king, president, or formal membership. It consists of the subscribers to the NZNOG mailing list. The group is intended to facilitate discussion among operators of networks in New Zealand on matters relevant to network operators.

Annual Conference

Our annual conference provides both an opportunity to exchange technical information, and a high-value opportunity for NZ’s networking staff to ‘network’ amongst themselves. This is New Zealand’s only technical networking conference.

We held no NZNOG in 2021 due to COVID-19.

NZNOG 2022 will be held May 18-20 2022 in Wellington, at the Intercontinental Hotel.

The NZNOG Conference 2020 was held in Christchurch.

The NZNOG Conference 2019 was held in Napier.

Mailing List

The NZNOG mailing list is NZNOG. NZNOG is the mailing list. Given this definition it isn’t surprising that many threads are circular. The NZNOG mailing list is intended for the discussion of technical issues relating to networking in New Zealand. 

More details on the list can be found on the Mailing List page.

Network Operators’ Contact List
