11 Adoption of IPv6 in Saudi Arabia Mid 2007 CITC has started efforts for promoting the adoption of IPv6 in Saudi Arabia. CITC has launched the IPv6 project as part of the Internet Services Development Plan. The main objective of the IPv6 Project is to ensure the continuous development of the Internet in the country: – Raise awareness – Promote the deployment of IPv6 in the country – Ensure smooth adaption of IPv6 by stakeholders and minimize risks 11

12 Objectives &Strategy Tracks 12 Strategy Objectives Prepare for the IPv4 exhaustion by supporting IPv6 and ensure stability, business continuity and room for continued growth of the internet in Saudi Arabia Ensure a smooth adaption of IPv6 by stakeholders so as to minimize risks Raise overall IPv6 awareness nationwide by approaching stakeholders of both the public and private sectors highlighting the necessecity to adopt IPv6 Strategy Tracks

14 Saudi Arabia IPv6 Task Force Achievements The number of the Saudi entities that have IPv6 address space increased from 2 only in 2008 to 23 today. Some entities have started to provide their services through IPv6, (KACST, Mobily, Sahara and CITC). IPv6 test lab was built by CITC, and it is available for members. The Saudi DNS root server (.sa ccTLD ) is IPv6 ready. Saudi Arabia Tunnel Broker was built by CITC to offer IPv6 connectivity for any internet user in Saudi Arabia. Two IPv6 workshops were organized (2009 and 2011) with around 500 attendees. Nine taskforce meetings were held and sponsored by the taskforce members CITC has conducted three IPv6 Training for entities and individuals. CITC, MENOG, and RIPE organized IPv4/IPv6 BGP Routing Training in May in Riyadh ( Another one in Jeddah this week). 14

16 Awareness 1st IPv6 workshop was held in 2009 with more than 300 attendees. This second workshop Nine taskforce meetings were held and sponsored by the taskforce members. IPv6 websites IPv6 training sessions (more to come) – CITC locally developed one day training program – IPv6 Roadshow. 16

17 CITC Technical Setup IPv6 Test LAB: Interested clients (ISP, government institute, enterprise…) can connect to the ipv6 test lab using ipv6 over ipv4 tunnel. NO dedicated link is needed, just internet connectivity with a static IP address. Client can then test CITC ipv6 offered services (Web, DNS,…). 17

18 CITC Technical Setup IPv6 Tunnel Broker Offering IPv6 connectivity for internet users in Saudi Arabia. Working behind NAT. Free national service. In-House software. Source code will be available. 18
