AITI holds public IPv6 training

19th March 2014 - The Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) organised  IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) training that was held from 17th March till 19th March 2014 at AITI building. The training was conducted by Mr. Srinath Beldona from Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC). The training was attended by 50 participants from various organisations including e-Government National Center, AITI, educational institutions, telecommunication operators and relevant ICT companies.

The objective of the training is to upgrade the participants’ skills to include IPv6 competencies that are necessary to help their organisation and businesses to undertake the transitioning from IPv4 to IPv6 and to understand the various technical aspect of IPv6.

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.

Participants attended the training were given 75 per cent subsidy on the course fee by AITI. The subsidy is part of IPv6 transition programme spearheaded by AITI in its role as the ICT promoter and to address the issue of IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) exhaustion and to facilitate the smooth transition of the Brunei Darussalam’s ecosystem to IPv6.

At the end of the three days training, certificates were presented by Haji Yahkup bin Haji Menudin, the Chief Executive of AITI.
