Dear colleagues,

Greetings from AFRINIC!

It’s that time of the year again, and we’re seeking partners to join us in raising our continent’s Internet development capability through training and deployment support on IPv6 & RPKI.

Here’s what we accomplished in training in 2022

Trained 1900+ engineers
From 130+ countries
Median NPS of 50.25
Certified 37 engineers

But we’ve been trying to get beyond just training and have been trying to drive actual deployments using our Deployment Operationalisation (DO) program. 

Last year, we were able to help 55 organisations from 17 countries kickstart their IPv6 deployments by achieving the following milestones: 

Obtain a correct IPv6 prefix: 26 operators from 13 countries
Announce their IPv6 prefix: 5 operators from 4 countries
Valid route6 object: 11 operators from 9 countries
Correct RPKI ROA: 8 operators from 6 countries

We’re seeking partners to help us do more in 2023. If you’d like to partner with us on this mission,

The deadline for proposal submission is 20 March 2023 at 23:59 GMT.
