We are setting up a national internet registry

India has the largest internet-using population. We will have around 60 million broadband users by 2016 – which is expected to grow to 600 million by 2020.
We have to explore as to how IPv6 is going to give all new evolving devices their own space. We also have to explore how the government, technological society, civil society, academia and all other stakeholders are going to help IPv6 in this proliferation.

DietY, along with national internet exchange of India (NIXI) and internet service providers association of India (ISPAI), is setting up a national internet registry (NIR). Right now we are getting our addresses from Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) but India has a large number of internet users, so we thought of setting up our own registry where we can allocate IP addresses. For the purpose, we have already recognised NIXI as an NIR in the country. In a couple of months, allocation of IP addresses from NIXI will start.

For the last three years, we have been conducting training for academia, users and service providers. We have been working with department of telecom (DoT) and other stakeholders on the innovative application of IPv6 on pilots like prospects of IPv6 in terms of energy conservation in buildings.
The purpose of building these applications and value addition is to make users see the usefulness and then transform or migrate faster to the IPv6.
