Indonesia Promotes IPv6 Migration

The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (Kominfo) advocates the usage of internet protocol addresses (IP Addresses) or internet protocol version 6 (IPv6) to transcend the limiting capacity of IPv4.

Dr Ismail, Director General of Post and Information Technology at Kominfo, claimed that IPv4 has been the primary technology for implementing internet services for nearly four decades. However, the availability of IPv4 becomes increasingly limited on occasion.

The Ministry has compiled Minister of Communication and Information Technology Regulation Number 13 of 2014 regarding the Roadmap Policy for the Implementation of IPv6 in Indonesia to increase the use of IPv6.

In addition, Kominfo has established an IPv6 task force with the participation of various Internet industry stakeholders and has organised a national IPv6 Summit and World IPv6 Day Exhibition, which have resulted in the Bali Declaration and Bandung Declaration regarding the ICT industry’s readiness for IPv6 execution.

According to Dr Ismail, Kominfo does not forget to continue socialising with stakeholders and assisting in the implementation of IPv6 alongside other connected organisations. He said that the IPv6 feature has various benefits in terms of enhanced security and that it was created in tandem with the IPsec function, which is required for IPv6 deployment. Moreover, the IP security feature enables support for the privacy and data integrity authentication procedure that is included in the IPv6 implementation.

IPv6 is compatible with all equipment and individuals that employ IP Address communication, such as 5G cellular connection. This will provide a far higher level of security if each device and individual have a distinct IP address.

Dr Ismail acknowledges that there are still several obstacles to accelerating the installation of IPv6, and he stressed the significance of stakeholder support in periodically enhancing IPv6 implementation in Indonesia. This includes telecommunications service providers, device manufacturers, content, and application suppliers, as well as Ministries/Agencies, Regional Governments, and the public as end users.

Globally, IPv6 implementation is expanding at a rate of 32.95 per cent every year. IPv6 penetration in Asia is 38.75 per cent while in Southeast Asia it is 29.84%. Moreover, the three nations with the highest IPv6 adoption rates are India at 78.91% followed by France at 54.77%, and the United States at 53.14%. Indonesia ranks seventh in Southeast Asia for IPv6 adoption, behind the Philippines, with a 14.05% adoption rate.

Human resources and capital to replace equipment that does not support IPv6 are part of the challenges that Indonesia faces in implementing IPv6 adoption. On the other hand, the network operators and application suppliers are still awaiting one another with IPv4 as their default.

Meanwhile, during the recent 3rd World Conference on Creative Economy (WCCE) in Bali, Indonesia demonstrates its continued worldwide leadership in international cooperation in the creative economy.

The Ministerial Meeting, which was headed by Sandiaga Uno, the Indonesian Minister for Tourism and Creative Economy, and attended by Tri Tharyat, the Director General of Multilateral Cooperation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, resulted in the “Bali Creative Economy Roadmap 2022.”

The roadmap has sixteen action plans to develop the sector of the creative economy, including:

  • Strengthening the creative economy’s contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals
  • Establishment of a centre of excellence
  • Digital transformation
  • Adoption of intellectual property
  • Development of skills and knowledge
  • Protection of the informal sector

Governments and stakeholders will use the roadmap as a guide to nurturing the creative economy sector.

Indonesia has strong ambitions to be a regional digital hub and is working to create infrastructure and policies that foster a suitable environment for innovators and investors. The Personal Data Protection Act was recently adopted by the Indonesian House of Representatives and is scheduled to enter into force upon promulgation, making the country the fifth in ASEAN to have personal data legislation.
