Since UP Diliman's IPv6 deployment was on the roadmap for almost a decade, there was enough time and resources to experiment with IPv6 in the network that when the time came for the actual IPv6 implementation, UP Diliman, through the University Computer Center, had little or no problems implementing IPv6 across the campus.


UP Diliman made sure that most of the network core, access and edge switches procured in the previous years were IPv6-compliant, thereby eliminating the need to purchase new equipment on critical nodes when IPv6 implementation took place.


Aside from making the network devices IPv6-compliant, the network team behind UP Diliman took a three-day workshop to familiarize themselves with various IPv6 deployment strategies, as well as on how to design and troubleshoot IPv6 networks.


The University of the Philippines has seven constituent-universities located at 12 campuses across the country. With this, the University Computer Center in UP Diliman held its first IPv6 training seminar with delegates from other UP campuses to assist them in their respective IPv6 implementations as well.


The University Computer Center together with its partners always strives for the technological advancement of the University. With this, the implementation of IPv6 is due to the combined efforts of the following people:

  • Johnrob Bantang - UPCC Director
  • Roel Ocampo - Former UPCC Director
  • Raymond Nunez - IPv6 Lead Architect
  • Frank Mendoza - BGP Peering Engineer
  • Jason Chao - BGP Peering Engineer
  • Christine Alejandro - VoIP Engineer
  • Francis Mendoza - Network Engineer
  • Gerardo Maria Roxas - Network Engineer
  • Marc Jordan Angco - Network Engineer
  • Riyeth Tanyag - Network Engineer
  • Byron Maniquis - DNS Administrator
  • Shane Hermoso - DNS Administrator
  • Jamaica Palce - DNS Administrator
  • Bayani Benjamin Lara - Preginet Head
  • Rod James Bio - Preginet Engineer
