The IPv6 Webinars are back! This year we promise better, authoritative and more interactive sessions. So roll up your sleeves and get ready to participate in another series of the popular Webinars.
Last year, more than 200 people attended five Webinars. Three were in English and the rest in French. They covered a wide range of issues albeit mostly on IPv6.
This year, you choose. We want to know what you would like to see in the menu. These are your Webinars and you know better what you want. Overall, the Webinars are meant to assist African operators with their IPv6 adoption and deployment plans through sharing best experiences and practices region-wide. An IPv6 related topic (technical or non-technical) will be discussed in each Webinar. The Webinar will address these topics by inviting leading experts to share their experiences. For the first Webinar of 2013, we would like to invite you to participate in shaping the topics for the rest of the webinars.
