Technological developments in SEE+

Technological developments in SEE+

22 SeptemberSep 2020 11:00 - 12:00

SEEdigital HallMain sessionsInternet infrastructure

Building on the discussion from SEEDIG 5, we will look at infrastructure readiness for new technologies. The SEE+ region has been somewhat slow in implementing new Internet standards, such as IPv6, DNSSEC, RPKI, bringing with it suboptimal performance, vulnerability in terms of security and even financial consequences for both Internet providers and users. Internet Exchange Points have made strides in limiting local traffic, but there is still room for improvement. Cooperation among network operators across the region is important for the smooth and efficient running of the Internet. We will look into how operators handled the increased demand for bandwidth during the coronavirus crisis, what particular pressures they faced and lessons learned for the future. Finally, we will look into any challenges from a regulatory and market perspective.
