APNIC staff and Executive Council (EC) members visited Manila, Philippines, on 15 June to hold an APNIC Regional Meeting in conjunction with PhNOG. The meeting was arranged with the generous assistance of the Philippines Department of Science and Technology’s Advanced Science and Technology Institute (DOST-ASTI).
More than 100 attendees from the technical community saw ten presentations covering topics including IPv6 adoption trends, IXPs, PHOpenIX, and NOG updates, with a “peering personals” session closing the day before an evening social.
The APNIC EC held its quarterly face-to-face meeting the day before the event, and a ‘Meet the EC’ lunch was held during PhNOG.
APNIC activities at the event included:
- Paul Wilson presented an update on APNIC’s activities in 2014 and 2015
- Sanjaya presented on regional IPv6 trends and IPv6 adoption (presentation below). His presentation was followed by an update from Philippine IPv6 Forum vice-chair, Medel Ramirez, on IPv6 in the Philippines, and a case study from International Rice Research Institute CIO, Marco van Berg, on how IRRI has deployed IPv6
- APNIC EC Members, Gaurab Raj Upadhaya and Che-Hoo Cheng, also presented during the event. Gaurab discussed his experience in establishing and working with NOGs, while Che-Hoo discussed HKIX’s growth over the past 20 years as well as its recent IPv4 renumbering project
- Anna Mulingbayan presented a “Ready to ROA” session to encourage APNIC Members in the Philippines to create their ROA objects in MyAPNIC.
Thanks again to all our Members who attended the meeting and to PhNOG and ASTI for their great support in helping arrange the event. We hope to be back in the Philippines again soon!
