The number of internet connected devices is increasing terrifically, with each device assigned a unique Internet Protocol (IP) address at a time. Hence the expected problem of IPv4 address exhaustion in the near future called for a better and permanent solution, which is switching to IPv6. Adoption and deployment of IPv6 recorded a fast growth rate globally, though the slow growth rate recorded in Africa was suspected to be due to the poor capacity building and the level of the IPv6 awareness campaign in the region. It was concluded that the developmental strategies created to help in the deployment of IPv6, such as the global awareness campaign, was confirmed effective. Also the World IPv6 day provides a 24 hours experiment to uncover the challenges of the transition to IPv6 and to develop measures to resolve them.
