Public Comment Opened for IPv6

The Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has released a draft legislation regarding IPv6.

Released on October 13th, 2021, this Technical Code specifies the deployment requirements for organisations to complete the transition to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). The full transition to IPv6 is the only viable solution to sustain the development of the internet. Despite the criticality of Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addressing exhaustion, organisations in Malaysia have been rather slow to adopt IPv6 and the same trend is evident in developing nations all around the world.

This Technical Code will assist organisations:

  • a) that have not or are considering to deploy IPv6 in their network and services;
  • b) that have initiated transition but looking to enhance IPv6 in their network and services;
  • c) in creating push factors to move towards native IPv6; and
  • d) with greenfield deployments that are looking for quick wins.

This would be in line with the national aspiration to accelerate the adoption of IPv6 services in Malaysia and to allow consumers access to application drives or services using IPv6.
