Ajay Prakash Sawhney, Secretary Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY) & Chairman NIXI has inaugurated three initiatives of the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI). With this launch, NIXI has announced to play a supporting role for the IPv6 awareness and adoption in the country along with the Department of Telecom (DoT) and MeitY.
 
The first initiative is IPv6 Expert Panel (IP Guru), which is a group to extend support to all the Indian entities who are finding it technically challenging to migrate and adopt IPv6. It’s a joint effort of DoT, MeitY, and the community to promote IPv6. The expert panel group comprises members from government and private organizations.
 
The second initiative he announced is the NIXI Academy. The academy aims to educate technical/non-technical people in India to learn and relearn technologies like IPv6 which are normally not taught in Educational Institutes. “Through this academy, our Internet community will be able to learn from various technical modules. Successful candidates (after passing examination) can take a certificate from NIXI, which will be useful to find/upgrade jobs in the Industry,” he said.
 
NIXI has also developed an IPv6 index portal for the Internet community. NIXI-IP-INDEX portal will showcase the IPv6 adoption rate in India and across the world. It can be used to compare the IPv6 Indian adoption rate with other economies in the world. NIXI will populate this portal with web adoption in IPv6, IPv6 traffic etc. in the coming days. This portal will motivate organisations to adopt IPv6, provide inputs for planning by technical organisations and research by academicians.
