Huawei and its partners meet at the inaugural IP Gala to outline the future of the Internet in the African region

Huawei, together with partners including IPv6 Forum, African Telecommunication Union (ATU), and Arab Information and Communication Technology Organization (AICTO), held Africa’s first IP GALA in Marrakesh, Morocco. The theme “Intelligent IP Network, Boost New Growth” brought together representatives of government regulatory bodies, operators, industry organizations and consulting agencies gathered to discuss the future of the Internet in the Arab African region. Topics discussed included global IP industry development trends, operators’ successful practices with IP services, and IP technology evolution and innovation to help operators achieve overall business growth, accelerate the pace of regional IPv6 industry upgrades and unleash Africa’s digital productivity.

At the conference, the IPv6 Forum, AICTO, ATU and Huawei jointly released the White Paper on IPv6 Development for Arabia and Africa to offer guidance for IPv6 technology evolution and industry development in the region Arab-African. This white paper takes a close look at the development of the IPv6 industry in Africa and highlights that IPv6 is an inevitable trend for the next generation Internet, as well as an ideal choice for the deployment of 5G transport networks and the development of 5G services. Also at the conference, operators in the region, including Tunisie Telecom and Hatif Libya, announced their membership of the IPv6 Enhanced Council (IPE). This further expands the IPv6 Enhanced field in Africa, facilitating the regional development of IPv6.

In his keynote speech, Steven Zhao, vice president of Huawei Data Communication product line, noted that the next-generation IP transport network must not only provide higher bandwidth, but also meet the requirements of intelligent connections, differentiated SLAs and energy saving for multi-service transmission. Huawei remains at the forefront of data communication technology development and is a global leader in IPv6 Enhanced, Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 7, 400GE and 800GE. As Africa enters the initial stage of 5G and digital transformation, Huawei is committed to providing the latest technologies to help build a better Africa.

SRv6 is widely regarded as the most advanced protocol for IP network evolution and 5G transport networks, with its highly developed standards and technologies. According to Oussama Samet, Executive Director of Networks Development at Tunisie Telecom, IPv6 Enhanced serves as the cornerstone of connectivity in the 5G and cloud era. Tunisie Telecom has successfully built a 5G-ready IPv6 transport network based on SRv6 to upgrade IP private lines and provide differentiated user experience.
