Rudman, who is also the President of the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NIRA) was chosen to chair the programme as he parades over 15 years’ experience in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector.
He further said that Rudman is reputed to have grown IXPN, to an enviable position as numero uno in localizing Internet traffics in Nigeria and by extension the West African region.
Nweke calls to mind that a collaborating organization, DigitalSENSE Africa, has been leading this forte under the aegis of the Nigeria IPv6 Roundtable in commemoration of the World Internet Protocol Version Six (IPv6) Day, every June 6; to promote the adoption of IPv6 for the products and services as well as create awareness, especially in Nigeria.
He noted that ITREALMS is collaborating with DigitalSENSE Africa, an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) accredited At-Large Structure (ALS), which brought IPv6 awareness to Nigeria since 2011.
Nweke also said that this year’s virtual event is to sustain the awareness around the IPv6 evolution despite the Coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic, which trajectory kickoff was occasioned by the depletion of the Internet Protocol version Four (IPv4), over eight years ago.
