In just over a week, APNIC 54 will be held in Singapore, in conjunction with APrIGF 2022 and APSIG 2022. To celebrate APNIC 54’s host economy, over the coming days we’ll be championing the successes, investigating the challenges, and sharing the history of our host city’s Internet operations.
We will have an in-depth look at the Wireless@SG network, explore the National University of Singapore’s network plan for a borderless university, and investigate why Singapore Internet Exchange (SGIX) has proven such a success. We’ll also examine IPv6 deployment in Singapore, explore Singapore’s role in the cable world (including the surprising Singapore discovery that shrunk the world), and we’ll hear from Dr Tan Tin Wee, Singapore’s father of Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs), who’ll share details on his 30+ year involvement in Singapore’s Internet development, and future priorities for the densely populated city-state.
There’s a lot to be said about APNIC 54’s host city, and Singapore itself has a lot to say. Stay with us over the coming days on the APNIC Blog as we share just a few of those stories.
