Online voting platform launched

We are pleased to announce that we have now opened our e-voting platform for a wide member test. The online voting process was earlier postponed in order to allow the system to be further interrogated by the community before using it for real Board elections.

Although a lot of time and effort has already gone into AFRINIC’s endeavour to integrate the e-voting system into MyAFRINIC, there is need to subject it to further tests to ensure it was well understood, sufficiently transparent and secure to be used in all confidence. The system is now released in our member portal for a wide-scale test.

Please take time to look through the e-voting document and participate in the test to ensure the system works, and that it can contribute to making the election process transparent and effective. You can look at the announcement on the online voting on this page. You can also access the document on online voting at voting.pdf.

Do not hesitate to send us your feedback or contact us for support at: myafrinic-admin [at] afrinic dot net

IANA Allocates 39/8 & 106/8 to APNIC

IANA has allocated 39/8 and 106/8 to APNIC, the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) for the Asia Pacific region.

This event triggers a longly anticipated day by the global Internet community when based on the “Global Policy for the Allocation of the remaining IPv4 Address Space

That states:

During this phase IANA will automatically allocate the reserved IPv4 allocation units to each RIR (one /8 to each one) and respond to the last request with the remaining available allocation units at the IANA pool

IANA will be allocating one /8 to each RIR.

We expect IANA to allocate these final /8s within the next few days.
