The Research and Innovation department organised a full day workshop on Internet Measurements at AFRINIC-29, in Hammamet, Tunisia, in which 25 engineers and students from different African organisations and companies actively participated.The workshop was organised in two parts with a half day dedicated to presentations on previous and ongoing measurement research in Africa and the second half of the day was dedicated to tutorials on Measurement Lab and RIPE Atlas.

In the first part of this article, we analyzed the impact of the deployment of IPv6 on corporate networks, which include governments, companies and organizations. This second part exposes in broad strokes and as a quick guide, the necessary steps to face the IPv6 deployment project.

AFRINIC’s IPv6 deployment helpdesk offers free guidance on IPv6 projects.

Any organisation is welcome to make a request for support, share relevant experience and challenges while deploying IPv6 through the helpdesk. Follow this link: https://vox.afrinic.net/343185?lang=en (for English) or https://vox.afrinic.net/343185?lang=fr (for French).

This initiative is part of AFRINIC’s IPv6 Deployment Support Program that provides continuous support to IPv6 Training provided to Network Engineers and Managers. We extend an invitation to IPv6 task forces to share their IPv6 experiences.

A series of webinars addressing specific IPv6 deployment issues and recurrent themes that come up during AFRINIC’s helpdesk sessions are organised on a regular basis.

We look forward to receive your application.
