APNIC participating in World IPv6 Launch
APNIC is a registered Website Operator participant in the World IPv6 Launch. Our external services have been IPv6 enabled for several years, but support IPv6 deployment in the Asia Pacific and worldwide.
The Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) is a registered Website Operator participant in the World IPv6 Launch.
World IPv6 Launch is an internationally coordinated effort by the Internet Society (ISOC) and networking engineers from several major content providers including Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai, Limelight, and AT&T, all of which will permanently enable IPv6 across their services. APNIC's external services have been IPv6 enabled for several years, and we support IPv6 deployment initiatives across the the Asia Pacific and worldwide.
APNIC supports real and tangible IPv6 deployment, which is dependent on capacity and skill building among the region's network engineers. In 2011, APNIC Training delivered practical, hands-on IPv6 workshops and tutorials to more than 1,100 engineers. These courses are delivered in face-to-face and eLearning modes to cater to as many participants as possible.
Today, APNIC Training is delivering three face-to-face IPv6 sessions in Malaysia, Viet Nam, and Mongolia. Later this month, interactive online modules will be broadcast to three Asia Pacific sub-regions. If you would like to sign up for a training course, check the APNIC Training Calendar.
Geoff Huston, APNIC Chief Scientist, will present the current status of regional IPv6 deployment and the way forward at the official World IPv6 Launch in Hong Kong. Other APNIC representatives will attend the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) World IPv6 Launch event in Zhuhai.
