NIXI announces 3 initiatives to boost adoption of IPv6

Published: Apr 16, 2021


NEW DELHI, APR 16, 2021: THE National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) on Thursday launched three  initiatives to support the adoption and raise awareness about the next generation IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) in the country.

Each device needs to have an Internet Protocol (IP) address which provides identification and location information. The existing scheme, called IPv4, is running out of addresses. IPv6 is the most recent IP standard defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force. It uses 128-bit addresses, allowing for a substantially larger number of possible addresses.

NIXI's IPv6 Expert Panel (IP Guru) is a group to extend support to entities who are finding it technically challenging to migrate and adopt IPv6. In addition to this, the IPv6 expert group will help in identifying a hiring agency that will help the end customer by providing the necessary technical support.

NIXI Academy, the second initiative, will educate technical and non-technical people about technologies like IPv6 and lead to better management of internet resources in the country. The easy-to-use platform helps network operators and educators understand networking best practices, principles and techniques; manage Internet resources better; and use appropriate Internet technologies more effectively.

NIXI academy comprises an IPv6 training portal which is developed with the help of various technical experts in order to provide mass training to the community. Through this academy, people can also learn various modules and get certified by NIXI, which will be useful to find or upgrade jobs in the Industry.

An IPv6 index portal has also been developed by NIXI to showcase the adoption rate. The NIXI-IP-INDEX portal can be used to compare IPv6 Indian adoption rate with other economies in the world. NIXI will populate this portal with web adoption in IPv6 and IPv6 traffic.

NIXI's new launch will play a supporting role for the IPv6 awareness and adoption in the country, supported by the Department of Telecommunication and the Ministry of Electronics and IT.
