High-level Conferences and Tutorials at LACNIC 30
Rosario (Argentina) will host the Latin American and Caribbean Internet community on 24-28 September at the Ros Tower Convention Center. The LACNIC 30 LACNOG 2018 meeting will include the participation of leading international speakers as well as security workshops, panels and tutorials, Internet resource management policies, geolocation, Resource Certification System (RPKI), Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), and Domain Name System Security Extensions, among other relevant issues.
One of the relevant conferences will be held on Tuesday 25 at 12:00 UTC, with the presentation of the expert Hervey Allen, who works for the Network Startup Resource Center.
Allen has many years of experience resolving and helping with connectivity problems at universities, national research and education networks, and has collaborated in the training of professionals from institutions, national governments and regional groups.
In his conference, Allen will address the lack of connectivity worldwide, particularly in the Caribbean, South America and Central America. Also, he will speak about the models in use of rural connectivity, as well as successful projects in small and medium-sized cities.
“We will talk about what we have seen when they have access to connectivity and what they need in order to achieve better connectivity,” Allen anticipated. In the presentation, Allen will further discuss new technologies in use today, and innovative proposals of companies such as Google, Facebook, O3B, and modern tools like TV white spaces, and long distance WiFi, among other issues.
