We present an overview of the technical status and current developments of the European VLBI Network (EVN), including an introduction of its Technical and Operations Group, the TOG. The telescopes, observing frequencies, and the types of observations run are briefly presented. We also describe the EVN VLBI backends and recorders and the developments performed during the last two years whose main goal has been achieving 2 and 4 Gbps recording rates.
