With pleasure, and I know that Louis will be able to assist as well.

Hi Andrew,


Thanks for your feedback. I only read your report in the mailing list which I found very useful. I'll go through your presentation. I hope to incorporate this in AFRINIC's training program.


One of the other things I've been thinking of doing is documenting case studies like the one you did and then getting participants in a training to work through it using the Case Method like Harvard Business School does.


When I do go down that route, would you mind if I use your deployment case and pick your brain?

Hi Mukom,




That was the process we went through and it contains a reasonable amount of detail.


I presented that at the Khartoum meeting (remotely) as well, but hopefully its useful.

Hello all,


One of the questions I often get asked during after teaching/facilitating and IPv6 session is: "Now I know all these tech bits and how they come together, but what are the steps for deploying IPv6?"  


I've often scratched my head because I thought 'that's obvious', however I gave have detailed and have decided to provide a framework that anyone could use. 




Surprisingly, these are very familiar steps that almost everyone who has done a project in the past can relate to. The steps are: 


1.     Set Clear Goals for the IPv6 Deployment Project.

2.     Identify the List of Tasks Required to Achieve each Goal.

3.     Identify Resources Required to Accomplish each Task.

4.     Get Management Approval/Sign-off for the Project.

5.     Execute the Plan, Documenting Everything as you go.

6.     Update Relevant Organisational Processes to Integrate new Capabilities Resulting from the Deployment.

These are quite obvious steps, however what each of them means and the thought process required to clarify each is what have detailed. I'd like your comments and also your suggestions on what you can do to move your IPv6 Deployment project from and "incomplete pile of unclear stuff" to and organised set of tasks that will surely lead you towards a working IPv6 deployment? Please share. 



Have an awesome week!
