2 IPv4 Address Space Exhaustion Predictors
IPv4 Address Space Report 28 October 2004 ( supported by APNIC) IPv4 Address Space Exhaustion Predictors Complete Exhaustion of all available IPv4 Address Space July 2040 Exhaustion of the IPv4 Unallocated Address Pool October 2018

4 Etisalat IPv6 Project Overview
Build scalable nation-wide IPv6 native test network. Ensure IPv6 standards compliance for Etisalat current and future systems. Establish test environment to evaluate the compliance of hardware and software with IPv6 standards Work towards exposure of the IPv6 standards within Universities, Colleges and Research Centers in UAE.

5 Etisalat IPv6 Deployment Strategy
IPv6 over IPv4 Tunnels IPv6 over dedicated data links IPv6 Using Dual Stack

6 Etisalat IPv6 Basic Infrastructure

10 Emirates Internet Exchange (EMIX)
EMIX is the first Network Access Point (NAP), private or public, established (1998) in the GCC, Middle East and one of the first NAPs in the African and Asian regions, built on multiples of STM-1 Fibre Optic Cables. 15 STM-1 links From two cable providers in the region Flag and SMW-3. Distributed between eastern side and western side of the world.
