The workshop is expected to provide impetus for Nigerian network operators to migrate from IPV4 to IPV6 with its attendant advantages; provide qualitative training for those engineers that managed our networks which would help, as we tackle the problem of quality of service in the telecommunication industry; provide Nigerian network engineers with the required knowledge to compete favourably with their counterpart in the global market; enhance, as well as upgrade, the performance of our Network Engineers on network management with the ultimate goal of ensuring the sustainable growth of the Nigerian telecom industry; as well as boost the productivity level of our network engineers.
