RIPE NCC and Jordan regulator partner up to increase awareness about IPv6 deployment in Jordan
Réseaux IP Européens Network Coordination Centre (RIPE NCC), in partnership with the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission in Jordan (TRC), effectively hosted a sequence of workshops and training sessions aimed at increasing the awareness about IPv6 deployment in Amman, Jordan. The sessions, which took place currently at Le Royal hotel have been attended by representatives from telecom operators, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), TRC and key stakeholders from the private sector. The periods have been aimed at training participants about IPv6 deployment and other associated topics.
Two training courses have been conducted over three days. A fundamental IPv6 training course, which discussed IPv6 adoption and deployment, and an advanced IPv6 training course, which looked at the similarities between IPv4 and IPv6 and how to make your network IPv6 ready.
Maha Ziad Mouasher, Studies and Research Officer at TRC said: “TRC stays steadfast in its dedication to provide the much-needed help to further amplify Internet connectivity and to enhance telecommunications services nationwide, which includes the efforts to promote IPv6 deployment. We are delighted at the success of this collaborative event with RIPE NCC and we look forward to working carefully with them throughout future endeavors”.
Chafic Chaya, Regional Communications Manager at RIPE NCC said, “We are very glad at the successful turnout of these training sessions in Amman, which was aimed at promoting the significance of IPv6 deployment, which includes the many advantages and benefits that it offers. We would like to prolong our appreciation to the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission in Jordan (TRC) for the vital role and engagement in the nation’s transition to IPv6”.
The trainings and workshops fall in line with the RIPE NCC dedication towards assisting its members in the Middle East Region with technical knowledge associated to IPv6 deployment and other networking topics.
