Southern Africa Network Operators Group

Building and Sustaining Regional Communities

As Africa develops her regional infrastructure, it has becomes more important to be able to build and sustain regional communities in support of the same. While not intended as a replacement for existing mailing fora, SAFNOG hopes to be able to provide a discussion forum, and build a community for matters specific to the sub-region.


SAFNOG-6: Deferred - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As you are aware, the world is facing the ongoing challenge of the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), which has had a material impact on a number of local, regional and global events and businesses across various industries.

Our 6th instalment

Unfortunately, the preparation for SAFNOG-6, initially scheduled for the September, 2020, has not been spared, as the pandemic has made logistical planning uncertain amongst our sponsors, supporters and venues. To this end, we have made the rather difficult, but responsible, decision to defer the SAFNOG-6 meeting to 20th - 22nd September, 2021, in order to ensure that safety and health comes first.

SAFNOG would also like to take this opportunity to encourage its and other Network Operators Groups members to actively use and increase their participation on this and other mailing lists around the world, as the learning and engagement process never ends; and in fact, is probably more crucial in these times. The operational community can continue to exist successfully even throughout this period of social distancing.

We look forward to seeing you all in the near future, and wish you continued good health and care.



Running for 5 years by volunteers. Hosted 5 successful events within sub-Saharan Africa.

Mailing List

Targeted at network and operations engineers in Southern Africa.

The mailing list was established to provide a forum for the exchange of technical information and the discussion of specific implementation issues that require cooperation among network service providers.

To ensure that the list is a useful forum for discussion of relevant technical issues, participants are asked to respect these guidelines. Failure to do so can lead to posting rights being denied.
