Providing the situation permits, the third community meeting of Czech and Slovak network administrators (CSNOG 2020) will take place on September 8th - 9th in Brno.

Therefore, we have decided to start preparations despite the ongoing emergency. After announcing the date and venue, we would like to publish the event website by the end of the month and open the Call for Papers. We hope to see a number of interesting contributions from Czech and Slovak network specialists as well as from colleagues from abroad, ”explains Sergey Myasoedov, who is in charge of the CSNOG 2020 programme selection.

The programmes of the past two years consisted of topics related to the domain name system, interconnection in internet exchanges, new tools in network security or telecommunications. Individual presentations and video recordings of these are available on the CSNOG 2018 and CSNOG 2019 event websites.

Up-to-date information will be gradually published by the organizers on the community website and on the social media such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

NIX.CZ offers new ports for two months free of charge

As many people are now working remotely, this is putting unusual strain on Internet networks, which may cause capacity problems. The Board of Directors of NIX.CZ has decided to offer new ports free of charge for two months, by which the Czech neutral peering node wants to help, when a large part of the country relies on services provided over the Internet.

 “We are aware that a large part of the population is currently working from home, which is generating a great strain on our members’ and customers’ networks. Therefore, anyone who orders new ports or upgrades existing ones in the next 30 days, will receive this capacity for two months free of charge. After this period, it will also be possible to cancel these ports free of charge. We will continue to monitor the development and, if necessary, come up with another form of assistance,” says Adam Golecký, Director of NIX.CZ.
