The IPv6 Forum Senegal Launched
with the Dakar IPv6 Summit
October 23-25, 2006
The IPv6 Pioneers and Leaders take IPv6 where it has not gone before!

Dakar/Luxembourg, September 4, 2006 - The IPv6 Forum is embarking on a large-scale promotion plan in the emerging nations. We welcome Senegal as the newest country to join this initiative by establishing the IPv6 Forum Senegal under the leadership of Mme Maye DIOP, President, IPv6 Forum Senegal.

The prime objective of this initiative is to promote deployment and swifter uptake of the new Internet using the new Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) with support from industry, educational and research communities and government agencies enabling equitable access to technology and knowledge by extending to it a strong voice and a legitimate representation in the new Internet world.

The IPv6 Forum Senegal will be launched during the Dakar IPv6 Summit organized by the Internet Society of Senegal closely working with the leaders of the IPv6 Forum. The event is generously sponsored by the Internet Society (www.isoc.org) and the European Commission project 6DISS (www.6diss.org). You may download the summit agenda here: agenda_dakar_summit.pdf.

"The leaders of the Internet Society Senegal are establishing the IPv6 Forum Senegal to extend to its national Internet community and Africa at large a strong voice and representation in the new Internet world to enable equal access to knowledge and education on New Generation Internet technologies and create momentum in deploying IPv6 for the global good", states Latif Ladid, IPv6 Forum President.

"The IPv6 Forum Senegal should win key stakeholders from government, industry and academia to design together the IPv6 roadmap and vision for Senegal to be among the first emerging nations to embrace the New Internet based on IPv6 " states Maye Diop, President IPv6 Forum Senegal

"IPv6 technology represent an opportunity for the developing countries to solve some key issues for increasing internet access for the citizens and production of local contents. To reach these goals, IPv6 Forum, as an open multistakeholders meeting, is designed to advocate to the decision- and policy-makers, the necessity to set up such New Generation networks, and to collaborate in the development of critical mass of engineers in these fields" states Alex Corenthin, President ISOC Senegal

The Internet uses Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) for the last 2 decades. Despite its tremendous success, IPv4 is showing signs of strains especially in its limited address space and its fast depletion. IPv6 preserves everything that's good about today's Internet - and adds much more: unlimited address space to connect everyone and everything, stateless auto-configuration, seamless mobility, automated network management, mandated security and new optional service levels.

The IPv6 Forum Senegal is a chapter of the IPv6 Forum dedicated to the advancement and propagation of IPv6 (Internet Protocol, version 6) in Senegal and the French-speaking Western African nations. Comprised of individual members, rather than corporate sponsors, the mission is to provide technical leadership and innovative thought for the successful integration of IPv6 into all facets of networking and telecommunications infrastructure, present and future.
