L-Root server copies to strengthen internet infrastructure in Africa

By , IDG News Service |  Internet

The L-root server is IPv6 enabled and will help AfriNIC in its efforts to promote IPv6 adoption in the region. There are IPv4 addresses still available, but AfriNIC is hoping for smooth transition for big and small operators.

"The L-Root Server deployment is IPv6-enabled, which aims to bring functional DNS service on IPv6 at the local level; we see this as an important opportunity to encourage the community that will host the instance to adopt IPv6 to fully benefit from the service," said Dawit Bekele, Regional Bureau Director for Africa ISOC (Information Security Operations Center).

While Akplogan expects the project to be a success, he said that more support from governments and related bodies is needed to work toward policy and an ecosystem that contributes effectively to realization of benefits to internet growth in the region.
