28 November 2016On 28 November 2016, during the AFRINIC-25 Meeting, AFRINIC and the Agence Tunisien d’Internet (ATI) signed an MoU to solidify their cooperation and mutual support in furthering IPv6 deployment in Tunisia and the surrounding North African region. 

Mr. Jawher Ferjaoui, CEO ATI, and Mr. Alan Barrett, CEO AFRINIC, signed the MoU which documents the two organisations' mutual commitment to support each other in terms of IPv6 deployment awareness building, outreach, training and capacity building throughout the region.

AFRINIC is one of only twelve organisations in the world certified by the IPv6 Forum to directly certify engineers. As the first training partner in AFRINIC’s new certi::6 programme, ATI will administer certification exams locally in Tunisia and surrounding North African economies so that engineers can get their certification within one week at an affordable price. Local training facilitated by ATI using AFRINIC's world-class IPv6 training course materials and certified trainers will prepare local engineers for certification under the certi::6 programme.

"We are heading in the right direction as far as IPv6 deployment is concerned but AFRICA still has a long way to go," says Mr. Barrett. "Throughout the year, our Training team has travelled far and wide delivering IPv6 Training Courses. AFRINIC and ATI share a joint mission to develop Internet technology skills throughout the region. This MoU is another example of AFRINIC's commitment to strengthening our capacity building efforts and to further highlight the importance of IPv6 deployment training throughout the continent. We are proud to collaborate with organisations such as ATI to spread the message that the time to deploy IPv6 is now.”
