First IPv6 Webinar 2014 – 15th August 2014 - By ISOC, AFRINIC and France Telecom

 

Save the date - The IPv6 Webinars are back for 2014! The webinars have begun in 2012 and 10 webinars have been organised since in both English and French with over 500 participants attending. The Webinars aim at assisting 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) is discussed in each Webinar. The webinars address these topics by inviting leading experts to share their experiences. The first webinar for 2014 focuses on IPv6 planning and deployment strategies in ccTLDs registries.

When? Friday, 15th August 2014, at 1 PM UTC. Since the webinar will start at 1 PM UTC sharp and it takes some time to connect using webex, participants are strongly advised to log in half an hour earlier in order to ensure that their connection works properly.
