IPv6 Workshop in Tbilisi

Dates: 15-17 December 2009 - Location: Tbilisi, Georgia

This IPv6 Routing Workshop took place in Tbilisi, Georgia, on December 15th to 17th 2009. Both the IPv6 lab opening and the workshop took place at GRENA offices in Tbilisi, Georgia. The opening was attended by government and local officials, whilst the workshop was attended by technical staff from Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia.

The workshop was organised by UCL, NIIF and Cisco Systems with local support from GRENA the Georgian NREN and the local Cisco Academy at GRENA. Press coverage was received on Georgian Television, and in the Cisco newsroom. The workshop was deliberately combined with two other events. First there was the official opening of another IPv6 laboratory donated by Cisco. This was the first IPv6 activity in the Caucasus. Secondly, the opportunity was taken to review the progress of another donation by the Chairman-emeritus of Cisco, who had donated $1,000,000 of Cisco equipment towards the formation of a Georgian government network following their peaceful revolution the year before. As a result the workshop was given a political significance and there was high-level attendance at a formal opening session.

Individuals present at the workshop included Prof. Peter Kirstein (UCL), Piers O'Hanlon (UCL), Socrates Varakliotis (UCL), János Mohácsi (NIIF/Hungarnet),and Bertus Habraken (Cisco) representing 6DEPLOY.
