Dear Colleagues,

AFRINIC invites you to its upcoming webinar on 'Internet Infrastructure Support in Times of Crisis'. During this time of crisis, there has been a significant increase in Internet traffic and changes in utilisation patterns.This webinar will bring a detailed perspective on
how the Internet infrastructure performed during this time of crisis and will be held in partnership with Packet Clearing House and the United States Telecommunication Training Institute.

The session will consist of:

* An overview of the Internet routing topology and points of criticality.
* An overview of DNS topology and points of criticality.
* A summary of OECD findings on the effect of the pandemic onInternet infrastructure.
* Recommendations on how governments can cooperate with the private sector on Internet infrastructure support.

Bill Woodcock, Executive Director at Packet Clearing House, will lead the session. Bill’s work focuses principally on the security and
economic stability of critical Internet infrastructure. He has operated national and international ISPs and content delivery networks since
1989, was one of the co-developers of Anycast, a technology now considered best-practice in DNS service-provision, and has built most of the global Domain Name System service provision networks currently in operation.
