Lagos is set to host hundreds of key players in the African and global Internet industry sector at the 27th public policy meeting of Africa Network Information Center (AFRINIC).

 

The event dubbed AFRINIC 27, scheduled to hold in November, will be a platform for technocrats and businesses to discuss policies, trends, resources and challenges in growing the Internet for sustainable development in Africa and the Indian Ocean Region.

 

The event  is being hosted by AFRINIC in collaboration with the Nigerian Internet Registration Association (NiRA).

 

The event which is held annually consists of keynote speeches, policy discussions, seminars, workshops, tutorials and other forums for sharing ICT knowledge within the African region.

 

The 2016 edition was held in Mauritius and was attended by over 250 delegates from 48 countries around the world. Registration for the event is on going through the meeting website http://bit.ly/2vdgM3P.

 

Whereas Internet penetration in Africa has grown from 11% to 28.6% in just 5 years despite challenges such as cyber security, it is lower when compared to the rest of the world. Measurable parameters such IP address allocations show that the continent is quite behind.

 

In April 2017, AFRINIC entered the depletion phase of fourth version of IP Addresses (IPv4) way behind of the other four continental regional Internet registries who are already distributing the newest version IPv6 in earnest.
