Dear Colleagues,
AFRINIC in collaboration with ngNOG is organising a Deployathon in Lagos from 27 to 29 October 2022. 

AFRINIC has less than 1,45 million IPv4 addresses left in its available pool. This, as you can tell, is grossly inadequate to meet Africa’s current IP address needs, making IPv6 the only sustainable way to continue to grow the potential of the Internet in Africa. 

In 2018, we designed and organised the world’s first Deployathon as a mechanism to bridge the gap between learning about IPv6 and actually implementing it.  

Since its inception we’ve run 13 (e-)Deployathons with 135 organisations from +20 countries participating. They were able to accomplish 196 deployment milestones; among them :

42 valid route6 object
36  address plans in IPAMS
23 validated RPKI ROA objects
20 Initial address plan
18 advertised IPv6 prefix
14 IPv6 prefix PI
8 IPv6-enabled core
7 IPv6 domain objects
7 IPv6 from test VLAN
4 IPv6-enabled DNS
2 IPv6-enabled customer

We invite you to register for the upcoming Deployathon in Lagos.

If selected, you will get the same step-by-step guidance, tools, and techniques we have perfected in 13 (e-)Deployathons, and +100 helpdesk calls to help realise your IPv6 deployment project.

This is clearly a measurable step forward in accordance with your network change management processes.

Date:  27 October - 29 October 2022
Time: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM UTC - 7 hours each day
Main Language: English
Eligibility: Qualified engineers based in Nigeria or able to travel to Lagos in that period.

If you are an engineer who runs a network and believes that you can make one concrete visible step towards IPv6 deployment (or advance your stalled IPv6 deployment), apply for a spot here <https://vox.afrinic.net/346428?lang=en> (Only 35 spots available)

Deadline for application: 19 October 2022.
