APNIC and the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) have conducted a two-day workshop on IPv6 adoption by ASEAN government agencies.
The workshop was held alongside the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Telecommunications Senior Officials Meeting (TELSOM) and ASEAN Telecommunications Regulators’ Council (ATRC) joint working group meeting held in Jakarta from 9 to 12 May 2016.
ASEAN TELSOM comprises senior telecommunications officials from each of the 10 ASEAN member countries and meets at least once a year to assist ASEAN’s Telecommunications and IT Ministers’ Meeting (TELMIN) – a Ministerial-level event where ASEAN Ministers responsible for Telecommunications and Information Technology gather to review the implementation status of cooperation activities. The ATRC acts in an advisory capacity for TELMIN and TELSOM.
APNIC activities included:
- Duncan Macintosh presented on APNIC’s activities in the ASEAN region, and the steps involved and benefits associated with deploying IPv6.
- Sunny Chendi provided an overview of the IPv6 deployment status among ASEAN economies and how they compare to other economies around the world.
- Both Duncan and Sunny attended a number of bilateral meetings with representatives from the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Asosiasi Penyelenggara Jasa Internet Indonesia (APJII).
