by | October 10, 2016

Internet operations experts from ISPs, data centers, Internet Exchange Points, content providers, governmental organizations, and research and educational institutions gathered this week for APNIC 42 in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The event was from September 28 – October 5. It started with a five day workshop, followed by a three day conference.

Approximately 300 people attended the meeting, including 6connect CEO Aaron Hughes. The conference focused on IPv6 deployment, depletion of IPv4, IPv4 transfers, and policy development.

Here are some video highlights from the conference, in case you missed it. First, Colt Technology Service’s Monika Singhvi discusses how networks can be more efficient, ultimately saving on CAPEX and OPEX.

Check out the entire opening ceremony and the keynotes, Zaid Ali Kahn of LinkedIn who discusses IPv6 at LinkedIn, and Rohan Samarajiva of LIRNEasia, who discusses Connectivity in the Bay of Bengal.

Here are additional highlights of the conference:

APNIC 43 will be held in February 2017; the location is not yet finalized. Thank you to the APNIC team for another fantastic event. We’re looking forward to the next conference!

“We decided to move our rather complex IP address and DHCP management process to ProVision and it has worked out great for us!! The team at 6connect were very flexible and went above and beyond to accommodate our requirements and helped to make the migration as smooth and hitch free as possible. Kudos to the team @ 6connect!”
