Now, an Indian Internet registry is born

Delhi, March 3, 2012– A new National Internet Registry (NIR) for India has been created -- the result of an agreementbetween the Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) and the Government of India. The Indian Registry for Internet Names and Numbers (IRINN) will be run by the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) and serve ISPs within the country that wish to sign up.
The new registry was announced on the final day of APNIC 33, a technical conference conducted in conjunction with the Asia Pacific Regional Internet Conference on Operational Technologies (APRICOT 2012).
Said APNIC Executive Council Chairman, Akinori Maemura: “We are extremely happy that this process is heading towards a positive conclusion; which, on the other hand, is also a commencement of a new relationship. I would like to thank the NIXI team for their support and the hard work they have demonstrated in making this a reality.”
Added Paul Wilson, Director General of APNIC: "We welcome the new National Internet Registry in India to the APNIC community. The Internet is a global community and IRINN, as the NIR is being called, should be part of that.I hope that many new Internet Services Providers will be formed in India, and they will always be able to choose between IRINN and APNIC for IP addresses. The market here is big enough and that kind of diversity will ensure better services and lower prices for all Indians."
APNIC has over 300 members locally, mostly Internet Services Providers and Telecommunication Communications companies, and over 6 million Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addresses were allocated in 2011.There are already 6 National Internet Registries in Asia in South Korea: (KISA KRNIC), Japan (JPNIC), China (CNNIC), Indonesia (IDNIC) and Vietnam (VNNIC). This is out of 56 economies in the Asia Pacific region.
APNIC is an open, membership-based, not-for-profit organization that serves as the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) for the Asia Pacific.It is one of five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) charged with ensuring the fair distribution and responsible management of IP addresses and related resources.

NIXI is a not-for-profit organization set up for peering of ISPs among themselves for the purpose of routing the domestic traffic within the country, instead of taking it all the way to US/Abroad, thereby resulting in better quality of service (reduced latency) and reduced bandwidth charges for ISPs by saving on International Bandwidth.

Tech note: IP addresses are how are device is identified when connecting to the global Internet and responsible management is required for the stable and reliable operation of this.

  "Can I just say what a reduction to search out somebody who truly is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You positively know the way to convey an issue to mild and make it important. Extra folks must read this and understand this facet of the story. I cant imagine youre not more standard since you positively have the gift."
