LACNIC 27: Experts Highlight Growth of Internet IPv6 Protocol in Latin America and the Caribbean

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay, June 7, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The IPv6 protocol, key to the development and growth of the Internet, has reached considerable levels of deployment and traffic in the region over the past year, as IT leaders concluded at the LACNIC 27 event, which brought together more than 735 participants.

The IPv6 protocol is the key not only to driving development of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the region, but also constitutes a vital tool for connecting with 40% of the Latin Americans who still have no Internet, emphasized LACNIC President, Warder Maia.

LACNIC 27, the most important meeting of Internet professionals  from Latin America and the Caribbean, was held in Foz de Iguaçú, Brazil, with the support of NIC.br and CGI.br.

Maia emphasized that in 2017, LACNIC is celebrating 15 years of institutional life, and placed special emphasis on the construction of the Regional Internet Register community, which has made possible development of a Web suited to the needs of Latin American and Caribbean users.

This year, Latin America and the Caribbean achieved Internet penetration of 59.6%.  As per this last figure, the region’s Internet community now stands at 385 million users, incorporating 40 million new ones in the past year. “It’s a reason for pride, and at the same time a double challenge, because we have to connect those who are not connected, while keeping on the Web those who are already there,” said Maia.

During the event, emerging technological trends were addressed, and their impact on the future development of the Internet in the coming decade in the panel, “The Internet of the future: its evolution in the next 10 years.” Moderated by Oscar Robles (CEO of LACNIC), the panel featured the participation of Adiel Akplogan (ICANN), Christine Hoepers (CGI.br), Flavio Amaral (Netflix) and Matías Quintanilla (Telefónica Argentina).

Furthermore, for the first time at a LACNIC gathering, ICANN CEO Göran Marby made an appearance, and presented “ICANN – after the transition from IANA supervisory functions.” He recognized the digital community’s work and stressed the growth of IPv6 in relation to Latin America and the Caribbean.

Out of the event’s five days, one of them was dedicated to IPv6 Day, with a panel of success stories where good practices and examples from the region were presented (Telefónica Brasil, COPEL, ANTEL de Uruguay and Telecentro Argentina).

Another highlight of LACNIC 27 was a presentation by the region’s first anti-abuse group, an initiative to strengthen the fight against online threats.

Meanwhile, LACNIC’s inclination towards greater  participation by women in IT in Latin America and the Caribbean was reflected in the heavy attendance at the panel on diversity and inclusion. Organized by the discussion list ‘IT Woman,’ the initiative sought to strengthen regional women’s role in the Internet community.

Brazil Is the Site of the Most Important Internet Event in Latin America and the Caribbean

FOZ DO IGUAÇU, Brazil, May 23, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — The promotion of integrated efforts at developing the Internet in Latin America and the Caribbean was prominently underscored during the first day of sessions of the meeting LACNIC 27, being held May 22-26 in Foz do Iguaçu.

The opening session featured Ariel Graizer (LAC-IX), Eduardo Santoyo (LACTLD), Demi Getschko (NIC.br), Hartmut Glaser (CGI.br), and Wardner Maia (LACNIC). “Given the overwhelming interest, registration had to be closed two weeks before the start,” said Maia. More than 650 people were in attendance, not including the 420 attending from a distance. The session also included a welcome by LACNIC’s president to the first woman to serve as co-moderator of the LACNIC Public Policy Forum, Paola Pérez.

Demi Getschko stressed the importance of being able to contribute as a co-organizer of the debates generated at LACNIC events. “Several challenges in the Internet space have caused concern, including attacks, regulations and neutrality. It is, therefore, important for us to remain vigilant of aspects such as these that can affect the Internet as a whole,” he explained. Harmut Glaser reminded everyone that “this week, the Internet’s headquarters in Latin America and the Caribbean is Foz do Iguaçu.” Certain topics of special interest to the region, such as IPv6 growth and local traffic exchange, were also highlighted.

The panel on the “Internet of the Future: Its Evolution over the Next 10 Years” was moderated by Oscar Robles, Executive Director of LACNIC, and included members Adiel Akplogan (ICANN), Cristine Hoepers (CERT.br), Flavio Amaral (Netflix) and Matías Quintanilla (Telefónica Argentina). Cristine addressed concerns such as security, stating that these should not focus solely on an attack response, but also implementation of good practices that do not increase the contribution of devices and networks with attacks. Adiel underscored the need to consider privacy at every level of the network. Flavio talked about the increasing interest of companies in providing users with more and more personalized content. Matías wrapped up the session discussing the important role that the 5G will play in the medium-term evolution of the Internet.

The opening session also included ICANN CEO Göran Marby. “The Internet gets larger when we connect and smaller when we disconnect. It is because of this that we need for more people from different places to say what needs to be improved and how. The collaboration that exists in Latin America and the Caribbean is a model for the rest of the world.”

The 27th meeting of the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry (LACNIC) will hold activities through May 26 and is co-organized with the support of the Internet Management Committee in Brazil (CGI.br) and Information and Coordination Nucleus of Dot BR (NIC.br).

Digium Introduces First Affordable HD Touchscreen IP Phone for Business

Digium D80 IP Phone for Asterisk and Switchvox offers Advanced Features, Unparalleled Value

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama, Feb. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – Digium®, Inc., The Asterisk® Company, today introduced the industry’s first affordable high definition touchscreen IP phone. The Digium D80 is poised to disrupt the status quo of high-cost, low-quality, touchscreen desk phones. With today’s modern workforce demanding ease of use, intuitive interfaces, high levels of customization and simplified workflows, Digium recognizes the challenge of successfully meeting these needs while also creating a premium product that is affordable for any user. Designed to complement any environment, the D80 provides the advanced features required by even the most sophisticated, evolving businesses. Digium will be demonstrating the Digium D80 in Booth 421 at ITEXPO, Feb. 8-10, in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Digium D80 IP Phone

Unlike other touchscreen desk phones, the Digium D80 is completely touch-driven, utilizing a large, 7-inch color HD screen. It provides a fully-integrated experience, giving users an unparalleled level of functionality with simple, flexible and robust call handling. The D80 supports up to 100 Rapid Dial Keys / Busy Lamp Fields / Status Indicators and provides touchscreen access to advanced phone applications like visual voicemail, user presence, intelligent contacts and visual call parking.

“In the past, touchscreen phones were too expensive, putting them out of reach for most businesses. They simply replicated traditional multi-button phones and failed to introduce any new, innovative or intelligent features to take advantage of the touchscreen technology,” said David Deaton, VP of Products, Digium. “The Digium D80 IP phone challenges that reality by making full use of the touchscreen interface. Rethinking the user interface by foregoing traditional physical buttons delivers a more intuitive experience and presents information in a more meaningful way. Most importantly, the D80 is priced within reach for every user, setting new expectations for today’s modern business desk phone.”

The flagship of Digium’s IP phone family, the D80 offers simple setup and full integration with Asterisk, the world’s most widely-adopted open source communication software, as well as Switchvox® and Switchvox Cloud, Digium’s award-winning fully-featured Unified Communications (UC) solutions. The D80’s impressive capabilities are rounded out with support for wideband (HD) audio, electronic hook switch (EHS) headsets, and gigabit ethernet, making it the perfect complement to Digium’s premium color-screen IP phones.

The D80 is compatible with Switchvox version 6.3.5 and Asterisk with DPMA version 3.4, and will be available in March 2017, at a market-leading price of $329 USD, far less than most competitive touchscreen IP phones. For Switchvox Cloud, Digium’s hosted UC solution, the D80 is available starting at $16* USD per month.
