Best Current Operational Practices (BCOP) Taskforce Agenda

Monday, 12 May 18:00 – 19:00

Jan Zorz, Internet Society and Benno Overeinder, NLnet Labs

The Best Current Operational Practices (BCOP) Task Force was formed at RIPE 67 in October 2013 to initiate and coordinate the process of documenting good common operational practices in networking. The BCOP Task Force brings together people to identify operational issues and motivate operators to document good operational practices, which are agreed upon by two or more parties. In its process, network operators and engineers present and discuss operational issues, and identify and level barriers for the deployment of new technologies.
