Internet Architecture Board,
The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic caused changes in
Internet user behavior, particularly during the introduction of
initial quarantine and work-from-home arrangements. These behavior
changes drove changes in Internet traffic.
The Internet Architecture Board (IAB)
held a workshop to discuss
network impacts of the pandemic on November 9-13, 2020. The workshop
was held to convene interested researchers, network operators,
network management experts, and Internet technologists to share their
experiences. The meeting was held online given the ongoing travel
and contact restrictions at that time.
Note that this document is a report on the proceedings of the
workshop. The views and positions documented in this report are
those of the workshop participants and do not necessarily reflect IAB
views and positions.
