As part of its mandate and effort in creating awareness among service providers in the nation's Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector, the Internet Protocol version Six (IPv6) Council in Nigeria has harped on the need for early migration and adoption.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to Internet Solution Nigeria, a leading Internet Service Provider in the country, IPv6 Council Chairman, Mr. Muhammed Rudman noted that the visit was designed to interact with Internet Solutions Nigeria, which the Council believed could be paving the way towards the realisation of IPV6 migration, which is seen globally to provide enhanced Internet service experience.

Rudman decried the low level of IPv6 ready networks, as well as usage in Nigeria despite the fact that the country occupied first and eight positions in internet usage in Africa and the world respectively. “We are worried that some countries in Africa have started migrating to IPv6 networks, yet Nigeria that prides itself as number one in terms of Internet usage in Africa is not making a serious move,” he said.

He commended Internet Solutions for deploying IPv6 on its network and urged other service providers in the country to consider migrating to IPv6 for Nigeria to maintain its position in Africa and move higher in the global ranking.

He also said that migrating to IPV6 would create more robust and realtime end-to-end Internet connectivity and avert the possible blockade from the exhaustion of Internet Protocol version Four (IPv4) addresses.

Responding, the Head of Network Operations at Internet Solutions, Mr. George Olunwa said that Internet Solutions has since deployed and advertised IPv6 block on the Internet, but the challenge was largely apathy from the enterprise customers, who are yet to see a pressing need for the implementation of IPV6 on their networks.

While thanking the IPV6 Council Nigeria for the advocacy visit and efforts so far, Olunwa assured that Internet Solutions would continue to push the idea of implementing IPv6 to its customers, admitting that the cost of migrating from IPv4 to IPv6 is next to nothing.

“What we have seen is that most of the clients are still going for IPV4, even though the cost of getting IPv6 is minimal. But, we believe that with this sort of advocacy being carried out by the IPv6 Council Nigeria, service providers as well as enterprise networks will begin to see a need for the deployment."

He also suggested a possibility of providing virtual lab for IPv6 within country, saying that would assist towards capacity building which can help to upscale the deployment and adoption of IPV6.

IPv6 is the most recent version of IP, the communications protocol that provides an identification and location system for computers on networks and routes traffic across the internet.

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is essentially a postal address for each and every Internet-connected device. Without one, websites will not know where to send the information each time a person performs a search or try to access a website.
