LONAP Conference - Inspired::25


LONAP is a member-owned IXP, and we would be nothing without our members.

Our 25th anniversary is a celebration of 25 years of LONAP’s interconnection and the diversity of our members.

Inspired::25 is an event for the wider networking community, and a way for our members to get to know each other outside the realm of IP networking.
