IPv6 National Implementation Strategy

Thursday, January 30, 2014

ictQATAR recently undertook a study into the state of IPv6 readiness across the State of Qatar’s IP ecosystem. The output of this study has been used in the development of this strategic plan for the national implementation of IPv6. It includes an implementation and adoption roadmap, tasks involved with governance and transition management and the associated budget planning and procurement activities. This national strategy will provide a framework for the well co-ordinated and orchestrated adoption of IPv6 across the national ecosystem by ensuring the various building blocks are in place in a timely manner to enable end-user organizations to progressively move to IPv6. It will also allow progress to be monitored against a common timeline and, where necessary, permit intervention to be triggered if progress is stalled for any reason.
