[AfrIPv6-Discuss] Registration Opens for the second AFRINIC IPv6 & RPKI e-Deployathon
willy.manga at afrinic.net
Mon May 17 09:04:39 UTC 2021
We do not do any live training. All training for engineers on IPv6 is
being done online at academy.afrinic.net. Learners also leave their
reviews there directly.
The live (online) events are the e-Deployathon and Helpdesk - the
objective being to actively help people deploy. We don’t write any
public reports for those.
During AIS'21 Online, there will be two testimonies by organisations
that relied on our helpdesk to address their IPv6 deployment challenges.
If you know other organisations willing to deploy IPv6 within their
network, kindly send them to our helpdesk .
If they can spare 12h (4h x 3 days) next week, they can register for the
e-Deployathon. The registration is open  until tomorrow afternoon.
During the SADC forum, on Thursday, 19th May 2021, at 2:30 PM
(UTC+2), we will be participating in the session "Stocktaking study on
deployment of IPv6 Prefixes in SADC". We will give some details
regarding IPv6 deployment within SADC states.
