IPv6 forum aims to drive changing Internet landscape in Malaysia

KUALA LUMPUR, 19 July 2018:

Participants attending the IPV6 Dialogue session organised by Persatuan IPV6 Malaysia and Adasta Network Sdn Bhd with the theme “Hastening the pace of embracing IPv6″ will have the opportunity to hear from prominent local and international speakers on the morning of July 25 at Nexus Connection Bangsar South here.

Three prominent speakers – Dr Latif Ladid, founder and president of The Global IPv6 Forum, professor emeritus Sureswaran Ramadas, emeritus chair of The Global IPv6 Forum Education and Zulkarnain Mohd Yasin, chief officer for network security and enforcement sector of Malaysian Communications & Multimedia Commission – have all confirmed their participation in the dialogue session, giving the session a major boost.

The discussion cum luncheon would feature a gathering of local HR and IT Heads as well as academicians and students with the speakers – who will discuss and exchange knowledge and ideas on the competitive advantage of being early adopters of IPV6.

This dialogue cum luncheon session, opened free to all participants, is designed to host “thought-provoking dialogue sessions where participants get to interact with the speakers in a fairly informal and intimate setting.

Participants can be exposed to a range of different perspectives and as well as discuss and engage with pertinent issues that Malaysia faces, particularly on IPv6 migration.

“Malaysia is already well ahead of the rest in adopting IPv6. The question is how Malaysia can leverage on this leadership it currently has. Hence, this dialogue session will be a very valuable reference in understanding local and global Internet industry trends and usage patterns, the web’s impact on traditional politics, economy, society and culture, and future directions of related policies,” said Sureswaran.

“With IPV6 embrace, Malaysia can be propelled into a top-5 nation globally or in the Asia Pacific region, hence competing internationally using ICT through increased productivity and sustainability.”

Those interest can confirm participation in the dialogue session before Friday July 20 with emails to bhaawani@adastanetwork.asia or siti@adastanetwork.asia or contact 03-2242 0550 for further enquiries.
