Talking with TechX Pakistan the Senior Internet Resource Analyst Mr. Pubudu Jayasinghe talked about his experience at the last ITCN Asia expo held in Karachi and also highlighted the importance of IPv6 in the global internet industry. He stated, “This is the second time I am visiting the ITCN Asia expo, first time in Karachi in 2019, it was really a great experience of mine. Now, it is the second time here in Lahore that I and my whole team again visited this expo. Our aim is to promote IPv6 which is our theme this year it is because we have a large number of clientele in Pakistan. I didn’t find a huge difference between Karachi and Lahore events per. The only difference is that Karachi has a large number of exhibitors than Lahore.”
