The Internet Society Morocco Chapter hosted “Journées Internationales d'IPv6, J@IPv6” 14 and 15 June 2012, an event that brought together over 100 attendees from all over the country. Discussion centred around slow adoption IPv6 rate in Morocco, issues around how to use tunneling mechanisms in the case of unavailability of dual stack, and how to put pressure on ISPs to adopt IPv6 despite the availability of IPv4 addresses. Technical workshops illustrated host (different OS) and router configurations (static and dynamic routing), as well as transition techniques with a focus on tunneling mechanisms. Creative solutions were put forward for deployment, including using Hurricane Electric tunnelbroker to make a 6-in-4 tunnel, creating an IPv6 LAN, which would allow users to experience IPv6 before all the ISPs have migrated.
Attendees discovered that MARWAN, which is a Local Internet Registry (LIR) has established an IPv6 addressing plan for all Moroccan universities since 2005! however no clear demand was done from academic institutions for an IPv6 prefix.
Al Akhawayn University has also become a Local Internet Registry, and adopted a migration plan with IPv6 addresses.
