Event Wrap: AFRINIC 20 and AIS 2014

Published on:Tuesday,17 June 2014

APNIC recently participated at AFRINIC 20, held together with the African Internet Summit (AIS) 2014, in Djibouti, Africa from 25 May to 6 June 2014.

The AIS is a regional multistakeholder ICT conference that brings together participants to share their Internet-related knowledge specific to the African region. Over 500 participants from 63 economies attended over the two weeks.

The program included a mix of seminars, workshops, tutorials and conference sessions, including a session on the resilience and stability of the IANA functions and the accountability mechanisms that should be established.

There was a lot of discussion around the policy proposals during the event, with much of it focused on AFPUB-2013-GEN-001-DRAFT-03 Academic IPv4 Allocation. This proposal details the criteria and justification that a higher education institution should provide to AFRINIC when requesting IPv4 space.

APNIC Project and System Services Manager, Frank Salanitri, presented the APNIC update as part of the Global Reports session.
