FREMONT, Calif. and HONG KONG -- Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone and colocation provider today announced that it is partnering with Internet Society Hong Kong (ISOC HK), to introduce the first IPv6 Certification Program in Asia. It will be conducted directly in Chinese for the Chinese speaking markets and will be the first non-English global IPv6 certification program.

The Chinese-language certification programs will feature content identical to that of Hurricane Electric’s existing English programs. The programs are self-paced and certify level of mastery (from “Newbie” to “Sage”) of real-world IPv6 concepts and deployment techniques. The certification program will be rolled out initially in Hong Kong, but will be made available eventually to Chinese speakers in other markets.

“While Asia is leading in the transition to IPv6, Hong Kong has to address the need for certification as well. This is where ISOC HK is taking a lead to spearhead IPv6 adoption in the local industries. By working with Hurricane Electric to develop a Chinese-language IPv6 Certification Program, anyone in Hong Kong can get up-to-date with the latest protocols and be ready for the next stage of Internet development,” said Charles Mok, chairman of ISOC HK.
