APNIC participated at the 18th Pacific Network Operators Group (PacNOG 18) in Guam from 30 November to 4 December 2015. APNIC also held an APNIC Regional Meeting on 30 November as part of the PacNOG 18 conference day.
PacNOG provides a bi-annual forum for network operators from the Pacific Islands to gather together to build their capacity on Internet infrastructure issues and network with their peers. PacNOG 18 was kindly hosted by the University of Guam.
APNIC activities included:
- APNIC Executive Council (EC) Chair, Akinori Maemura, gave the opening address to start the day.
- Paul Wilson provided an update on APNIC activities for the year.
- Fakrul Alam presented on a week analysing the status of RPKI in the region, the issues he found, and the need for network operators to create ROAs to validate their routing announcements.
- Elly Tawhai gave an update on IPv4 transfers and the trends we are seeing.
- Sanjaya gave a presentation on visualizing IPv6 measurements and Autonomous System (AS) mapping in the Asia Pacific, concluding that most economies are capable of managing IPv6 traffic; end-user IPv6 capability measurement illustrates that some networks are able to send IPv6 traffic all the way to end-user devices; and while the AS transit map indicates that most ISPs are able to provide IPv6 transit, the end-user capability measurement shows that deploying IPv6 in the “last mile” is still a challenge.
- EC member, Che-Hoo Cheng, presented on Hong Kong peering perspectives.
- Fakrul joined Nurul Islam to conduct an IP Routing workshop to 18 participants from 1 to 4 December. They later met with PacNOG organizers to discuss training opportunities in the Pacific for 2016.
- Elly also met with APNIC Members to discuss their membership and IP address enquiries.
