Asia Pacific IPv6 Task ForceThe Philippine Research, Education and Government Information Network (PREGINET) participated in the Asia Pacific IPv6 Task Force (APIPv6TF) Meeting last 29 August 2011.

The APIPv6TF Meeting is one of the activities during the Asia Pacific Network Information Center’s (APNIC) 32nd Conference. It highlighted reports on the IPv6 Day experience, supporting the IPv6 uptake and transition in several countries, including India, Japan, Korea and the Philippines, among others. It also featured a discussion on the APIPv6TF directions to understand what needs will arise in the near future.

The APIPv6TF was established in 2003 to encourage the IPv6 deployment in the Asia Pacific region, as well as to serve as a platform for knowledge exchange. Further, through subject task force, members from different economies show cooperation to address and manage the challenges that are brought by the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses.

Several economies have shared responsibilities of managing the Secretariat for subject task force in the past seven years. To date, the APNIC is the APIPv6TF Secretariat from January 2010 to March 2012.

The APNIC is the Regional Internet Registry for the Asia Pacific Region. It provides number resource allocation which support to the global Internet operation.
