The training programme is an initiative of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) National Committee in the UAE which is chaired by the TRA. It is being hosted by the TRA in cooperation with RIPE Network Coordination Centre (NCC), at the Palace Hotel, Dubai, from 24-28 July 2011.

Speaking at the event, Mohamed Nasser Al Ghanim, TRA Director General said: “Following the wise direction of the UAE Government and due to the TRA’s mandate of developing and organizing the ICT sector in the country, the TRA in cooperation with RIPE NCC launched this event with the aim of spreading awareness among government and private sector bodies about the necessity to consider IPv6 in their networks and application services.”

“We sought through this event to focus on building the capacities of entities to prepare them for the future deployment of the IPv6 which is likely to take place in the coming two years as the IPv4 is exhausted from the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). The TRA will be leading and building capacities in IPv6 for the country and it will ensure a seamless transition to the new IPv6 in order to keep the UAE in line with the latest developments in the ICT sector,” Al Ghanim added.

The participants expressed their appreciation to the TRA for organizing this event. They noted that such events contribute in creating the sense of how important this transition and preparing for it are, in addition to giving their entities the sufficient time to take all necessary actions and make all required preparations, because taking such a step cannot be performed instantly without preparations.
