ISPA iDay Western Cape Set for May 2022

The Internet Service Providers’ Association of South Africa (ISPA) is launching its second iDay event, in Cape Town, on 10 May 2022. The first iDay of 2022 was held in Durban earlier this year and helped the SA Internet community reconnect after two challenging years.

Together with partner entities, INX-ZA, the .ZA Domain Name Authority (ZADNA) and the ZA Central Registry NPC (ZACR), ISPA’s Western Cape iDay will bring together communities of practice representing different segments of the Internet value chain. These include representatives from Internet Service Providers (ISPs), hosting companies, industry regulators, domain name registrars, government and others who will share experiences and engage on developments that are taking place within the Internet industry in South Africa.

As a sneak preview; ISPA will talk to regulatory developments, licensing changes for ISPs, and the impact of the new Cybercrimes Act. INX-ZA will engage about peering, how it can save stakeholders money, and generally promote the principle of keeping Internet traffic local.

ZADNA, as the ZA Domain Name Authority and ZACR, as the registry operator active in the domain name business, will share insights on growth and development in the domain name sector; and on national initiatives aimed at promoting the .za namespace beyond its current 1.3 million domain names. These include opportunities for Internet companies to streamline and expand their domain name services.

Registration is still open for iDay Western Cape. Attendance is free and space is limited to 50 persons. Please visit this link to register:
