Page 4 Global situation PRIOR World IPv6 Launch Page 4 IS P Apps OS Internet devices (CPEs) Internet Service Providers (ISPs) Content More than 80% of the Applications are IPv6 capable Almost 90% of all Operating systems are IPv6 capable Less than 1% of Home routers are IPv6 ready Less than 2% of ISPs globally ready Less than 5% of content reachable on IPv6 Over IPv6
Page 5 IS P Apps OS Internet devices (CPEs) Internet Service Providers (ISPs) Content Almost the same at 80% (Skype & FaceTime still not v6 ready) Almost the same 90% (Microsoft supports XP till 2014) From 1% to almost 25% (Dlink and Cisco will enable IPv6 by default) From less than 2% to almost 10% (AT&T, KDDI, Free, Comcast and others) From 5% to over 75% (Top 30 generate more than 75% of traffic are enabling v6) Over IPv6 Global situation POST World IPv6 Launch

Page 12 Community Driven IPv6 Initiatives in AfriNIC African IPv6 Task Force For the past year the IPv6 Program in AfriNIC has been brainstorming with the African community on the IPv6 mailing list and at the face to face meetings on the establishment of a Regional Task Force that is mandated to encourage and help with the uptake of IPv6 in the African Region. AfriNIC has volunteered to do the secretariat work and hosting services for the Task Force.
Page 13 Community Driven IPv6 Initiatives in AfriNIC Out of the discussions FOUR Focus Groups were agreed upon 1) Policy and Government 2) Core, Transit & Peering 3) Mobile, CPE & Access 4) Web & Application Mailings lists Collaborative documentation Road map harmonization Experience transfer
Page 14 IPv6 Web Seminars in AfriNIC AfriNIC is Partnering with ISOC (Internet Society) and ORANGE (France Telecom) to provide a series of 90 minute web seminars throughout the year for Service Providers to discuss IPv6 related issues and encourage deployment by sharing best exercises.
Page 15 AFOPs day at AfriNIC-16 AfriNIC is Partnering with ISOC (Internet Society) to co-organize an full day for African Operators during the AfriNIC -16 meeting in Gambia. The day will be divided into two half day vital topics for African Operators: 1)IPv6 (AF6TF) 2)Interconnection and Peering (ISOC-ITE) First Meeting 16 of May 2012
Page 16 African IPv6 Portal in AfriNIC 6 spots The AfriNICs IPv6 Portal is designed to be a one stop shop for all relevant IPv6 information in the region Soon
Page 17 African IPv6 Documentation in AfriNIC AfriNIC is working on documenting IPv6 experiences and initiatives through the region Working with Countries to document their roadmaps and plans. Working with Major ISPs in Africa such as Sonatel (Senegal) and Emtel (Mauritius) to document their experiences. Working on a 2 year IPv6 documentation initiative with the European Commission on IPv6 deployment world wide. Talking with the African Union to do an African IPv6 documentation initiative.
