Workshop organized by 6DEPLOY in cooperation with KENIC (NIC Kenya)

Date: 17-19 June 2008 - Location: Sarova Panafric Hotel, Nairobi, Kenya

The KENIC-AfriNIC IPv6 Workshop was both an example of awareness work conducted by KENIC, as well as an example of the interest in new technologies - specifically IPv6 - shown by developing countries.

June 17th was the "Launch of IPv6 in Kenya", during which several organizations explained their interest in IPv6 and their future plans. Some interesting debate between the presenters and attendees also took place. Press media were present and raised the number of attendees to over 130.

The organizations represented at the "Launch of IPv6 in Kenya" were KENIC, AfriNIC, TESPOK, the Ministry of Information and Communications of Kenya, and the Kenya ICT Board. Universities and enterprises were also represented during the debate.

Individuals present at the workshop included Adiel Akplogan (AfriNIC), Ernest Byaruhanga (AfriNIC) and Alvaro Vives (Consulintel), all of whom are with 6DEPLOY. Adiel and Ernest participated in the first day "Welcome Address & Launch of IPv6 in Kenya". In addition, Ernest helped with the hands-on modules and gave an LIR workshop on the 20th of June. Alvaro was in charge of presenting both the IPv6 modules and the hands-on modules.

A report of the workshop can be found at: D1.3 Report from the 2nd workshop (1.90 MB).

KENIC also has a website for the workshop here.
