PTA and APNIC to hold 3 Days Training Workshop on IPv6 & DNSSEC


Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) in collaboration with Asia Pacific Network Information Center (APNIC) is hosting a 3 days technical training workshop on Internet Resource Management, DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). The workshop is scheduled to be held from 18-20 July at Local Hotel Islamabad. The objective to host this International training workshop is to provide a capacity building opportunity for technical community members.

This training workshop will highlight key essentials of Internet resource management. It will focus on understanding the structures, processes, procedures and policies involved in requesting, allocating and managing Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and Autonomous System (AS) numbers. The deployment of DNSSEC will also be discussed in detail with practical demonstration. This workshop is a result of mutual collaboration carried out by PTA’s ICT Directorate and APNIC over the past 6 months. It is anticipated that such events will assist in promoting technical capacity building within community members while also encouraging International institutes. 

This training workshop will also focus on providing an understanding and hands-on exposure to IPv6, its structure, operation and technical features. IPv6 addresses and architectures, issues related to the deployment, transition and co-existence with IPv4 will also be examined. The workshop will also feature hands-on IPv6 configurations on host computers, as well as IPv6 network building and configuration scenarios. Participants will have the opportunity to work on lab exercises related to deploying IPv6 in dual-stack operational IXP/ ISP environments as well as native IPv6 transit.

It may be mentioning here that, for the participants registration is made on ‘first come, first served’ basis due to limited seats. Interested participants are required to register themselves at APNIC website through the following URL
