Dear Community,

AFRINIC is pleased to invite you to register for its first IPv6 & RPKI e-Deployathon for 2021.

AFRINIC is the only RIR with IPv4 addresses in its free pool, 1,866,240 to be specific. This is, of course, 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.

As of today, that’s why after having trained over 6000 engineers from 50 countries, in 2018, we designed and organised the world’s first deployathon as a mechanism to shorten the time between learning about IPv6 and actually implementing it.

In 2019, we ran 5 deployathons in which 55 network operators have participated and, within 3-4 days, were able to accomplish 146 deployments KPIs.

In 2020, we redesigned the event and organised it entirely online. Nevertheless, 30 organisations from 14 countries were able to accomplish 23 deployment KPIs:

7 validated route6 object
4 address plans in IPAMS
4 advertised IPv6 prefixes
2 validated RPKI ROA objects
2 IPv6 traffic from test VLAN
1 IPv6-enabled DNS
1 IPv6-enabled website
1 IPv6-enabled email
1 network with IPv6 user traffic

If selected, you will get the same step by step guidance, tools and techniques we’ve perfected in 7 (e-)Deployathons and 91 helpdesk calls to help you move your IPv6 deployment one clearly measurable step forward in full accordance with your network change management processes.

Date: 30th March to 1st April 2021
Time: 9:00 to 13:00 UTC (4 hours each day)
Location: Zoom
Eligibility: Qualified engineers from any country in Africa
Main Language: English
Register here: https://vox.afrinic.net/375774?lang=en <https://vox.afrinic.net/375774?lang=en>
Deadline for applying: 22 March 2021

If you are an engineer who runs a network and believe that you can make one concrete visible step towards IPv6 deployment (or advance your stalled IPv6 deployment), apply for a spot here.

Only 35 spots are available for this webinar.
