An Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) conference and training workshop is set on April 23 to 27, 2012 at the University of the Philippines Cebu College, Lahug, Cebu City.

The workshop aims to create and sustain a group of experts in the country for future activities such as communities of practice and other common endeavors.

Dubbed as “IPv6 Unleashed: the 2nd Philippine IPv6 Conference and Training workshop”, the event will gather IPv6 experts, technical users, policy makers and decision makers in the country, as well as international counterparts  to share their work experiences and best practices on the use of Internet Protocol technology.

Expected speakers for the said event are IPv6 experts from Malaysia, Japan, China, and other South East Asian countries.

The event serves as a kick-off activity for the upcoming event “IPv6 Launch 2012,” which will happen on June 6, 2012 to celebrate the 2012 World IPv6 Day.

This joint effort is aided by the Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC), a regional internet registry in Asia and one of ASTI’s training partners, through technology updates and technical knowledge capability building.

This is a project of the Department of Science and Technology – Advanced Science and Technology Institute (DOST-ASTI), in cooperation with DOST-Regional Office VII, DOST-Information and Communication Technology Office (ICTO), the National Computer Center (NCC), and Central Visayas Information Sharing Network (CVISNET).

Program, workshop outline and on-line registration is available at the ASTI Trainings Website



Telecom giant Globe Philippines has already set in motion the transition of its core IP network to IPv6, or Internet Protocol version 6, making sure it is fully prepared as the Internet runs out of IPv4 addresses.

Currently, public IPv4 addresses are being used to connect to the Internet and with these facing exhaustion in the near future, there is a strong need to move toward IPv6.

With this initiative, business processes requiring Internet connectivity will remain uninterrupted. Users will have continued access to the Internet using new IPv6 addresses.

IPv6 supports a vastly larger amount of IP addresses than its predecessor. IPv6 will enable enterprise customers to have more public IP addresses to allocate within their organizations.

As Globe completes its IPv6 deployment, it will be able to provide a seamless Internet experience for its customers.

The transition to IPv6 on its core IP network will give enterprises access to both IPv4 and IPv6 sites or destinations on the Internet, as the resulting infrastructure will be capable of transporting both types of traffic. Globe assures enterprises of business continuity for a seamless transition to IPv6.
