By Megan KruseDirector, Partner Engagement and Communications

We’re just one month away from ION Durban, to be held Thursday, 7 September. ION will be part of the South African iWeek. iWeek includes events with the ISP Association (ISPA), the South African Network Operators’ Group (SAFNOG), and the South African Domain Name Authority (ZADNA). As usual, this ION also has generous support from our ION Conference Series Sponsor Afilias.

We’ll have a full-day program and cover our favorite topics including IPv6, DNSSEC, Collaborative Security and MANRS, and the IETF. Here’s a quick look at the agenda:

  • Welcome from the ISOC Chapter
    Thato Mfikwe, ISOC-Gauteng
  • IPv6 Deployment in South Africa
  • An IPv6 Case Study
    Andrew Alston, Liquid Telecom
  • Panel Discussion: MANRS, Routing Security, and Collaboration
    Moderator: Kevin Meynell, Internet Society. 
    Panelists: Ben Maddison, Workonline Communications
  • NAT64 experiments and NAT64Check tool
    Jan Zorz, Internet Society
  • Introduction to DNSSEC and Why We Need It
    Mark Elkins
  • A DNSSEC Case Study
  • What’s Happening at the IETF? Internet Standards and How to Get Involved
    Kevin Meynell, Internet Society
  • Panel Discussion: IPv6 Success Stories
    Moderator: Kevin Chege, Internet Society.
    Panelists: Andrew Alston, Liquid Telecom; Mark Elkins

Registration is now open. We’re also hoping to live stream the ION, so even if you can’t be there in person you’ll be able to follow along online. (Stay tuned for more information on that as we get closer.)

Will you be in Durban or watching online? Please speak up in the comments below or via our social media channels. We’ll be using #IONConf onsite!

We’re also hard at work on our last two ION Conferences of 2017 – ION Malta on 18 September and ION Belgrade on 23 November. Contact us to discuss how your company could sponsor an ION Conference.

We hope to see you in Durban, or at another event!
