Innovative IPv6 Training Lab

LACNIC installs special equipment in Montevideo to train technicians around the region on the new Internet protocol

In another effort to expand the use of the new Internet protocol within the region, LACNIC has installed in its office an IPv6 training lab within the framework of the 6DEPLOY-2 project, with equipment donated by Cisco Systems as part of the cooperation agreements of the project, sponsored by the European Commission.

The lab is equipped with six Cisco 1900 routers that can be accessed remotely both through IPv4 and IPv6, its use is free  both for the training  workshops organized within the framework of 6DEPLOY, as for any other applicant satisfying the requirements, as long as they do it through the reservation system of the 6DEPLOY web (www. 6deploy.eu).

The lab has already been in use for the past two months and it is expected that several in-person and virtual workshops will be organized in 2012. Likewise, LACNIC is seeking organizations that wish to organize local IPv6 workshops. Just as the workshops taught by LACNIC staff, local workshops will also have access to the training lab.

Arturo Servín, LACNIC’s Technical Manager, believes that the 6Deploy project and this new training lab are “of great importance for our region, as they allow us to continue our IPv6 training efforts”. In Arturo’s opinion, organizing these workshops is crucial for promoting the deployment of the new protocol before IPv4 address space exhaustion.

In addition to the Montevideo lab, the 6Deploy-2 project has installed another lab in Colombia and is finalizing the installation of two further labs in Argentina and the Dominican Republic.
