Thursday 26th October 2023

SIG-NGN is the Special Interest Group on Next Generation Networks.

This meeting of the 12th meeting of the SIG will be held virtually.


"Network measurement for performance engineering"

This meeting will cover topics related to network measurement methods and their significance when engineering our networks. Drawing insights from specialists, the attendees will get an overview of packet sampling, in-band network telemetry, and perfSONAR, amongst other related topic areas. The meeting will conclude with reflections on whether the data we’re currently collecting is sufficient and, if not, what we need to do to improve it. This will then lead to our next meeting on December 7th where we’ll talk about how we use this information to design the next generation of research and education networks.
