The 23rd UK Network Operators’ Forum (UKNOF) took place on 9 October 2012 and brought together the UK’s biggest Internet and telecommunications network operators to promote co-operation and co-ordination for the benefit of the UK’s Internet infrastructure.
Google Campus in East London’s Tech City played host to the forum, which featured talks from keynote speakers from some of the UK’s largest network operators on topics ranging from the history of the Internet to the performance of the UK’s Internet infrastructure during the London 2012 Olympics and the great summer of sport.
aql were one of the event's principal sponsors and provided attendees with aql SIM cards with a complimentary data allowance of 5GB. This was the third UKNOF forum supported by aql, and the company’s founder and CEO, Dr Adam Beaumont, is a long time exponent of the event.
“UKNOF forums are invaluable for companies in the Internet and telecommunication industries,” said Dr Beaumont. “By encouraging co-operation between the UK’s network operators UKNOF is helping to lay foundations for sustained success and stability in inter-network relations, and of course, the forums are a great opportunity to meet industry friends both old and new.
"We've hosted UKNOF up in Leeds in April 2011, with a huge turnout. We're hoping to bring UKNOF back to Leeds in 2013 and host the event in our bespoke conference facility".
