AITI holds IPv6 Seminar for relevant stakeholders
03/12/2013

 

2 December 2013 – An Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) Seminar was held yesterday by the Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI). The seminar took place at the AITI building and was attended by representatives from Government ministries, educational institutions, telecommunication operators and relevant ICT companies.

The seminar began with a welcoming remark by Haji Yahkup bin Haji Menudin, Chief Executive of AITI. In his welcoming remarks he mentioned the impending shortage of IPv4 addresses worldwide and the impact it would have on Brunei Darussalam, stating that it is no longer a matter of when to move to IPv6, it is now more of a question of how.

IPv6 is the latest revision of the Internet Protocol (the communications protocol upon which the Internet is built). IPv6 was developed to overcome the limited number of IP addresses available with IPv4. IPv6 implements a much larger range of IP address space than that previously available with IPv4.

Presenting at the seminar, Miwa Fuji, Senior IPv6 Program Specialist at the Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) elaborated on the national and global IPv6 deployment update, followed by case studies of IPv6 deployment from countries within the Asia Pacific region. This was then followed by a presentation from Professor Dr. Sureswaran Ramadass from the National Advanced IPv6 Centre of Excellence (NAv6) at Universiti Sains Malaysia, who shared on the Malaysian IPv6 initiative, their multi-stakeholder approach towards IPv6 deployment in their country, and the roles and responsibilities NAv6 has in the IPv6 deployment.
Through this seminar, AITI intends to provide awareness and to share experiences and best practices from APNIC and NAv6 on IPv6 development, as well as to identify the steps needed to be taken by stakeholder for the implementation of IPv6 in their organisation. This is to ensure Brunei Darusalam is prepared for the looming transition from IPv4 to IPv6. Apart from this inaugural seminar on IPv6, AITI also has plans to conduct IPv6 training in the first quarter of 2014. AITI will be bringing in trainers to train and share their knowledge on IPv6 related matters which will cover in depth migration strategies and technical matters pertaining to IPv6. Relevant and interested participants and organisations will be invited to attend these trainings, which will help to broaden the collective knowledge of the industries when tackling the development of IPv6 in Brunei Darussalam
