The African Network Information Centre (AFRINIC) is the Regional Internet Registry (RIR) for Africa. A non-governmental, not-for-profit, membership- based organisation headquartered in Mauritius, AFRINIC's core activity is to assign and allocate Internet number resources (IPv4, IPv6 and ASNs) to its members and provides related services, including RPKI and managing the Reverse DNS (RDNS) zones for the Internet number resources it allocates and assigns.
AFRINIC's IPv6 Programme promotes and supports Africa's IPv6 deployment through outreach, education, statistics and information. AFRINIC's IPv6 Training Workshops offer information on IPv6 addressing basics, how to get an IPv6 allocation, current best practices and IPv6 transition mechanisms.
