This week, the Indian Registry for Internet Names and Numbers (IRINN) welcomed around 50 affiliates, including APNIC staff, to their 3rd Open Policy Meeting in New Dehli, India on 24 November 2015.

IRINN is the National Internet Registry for India and provides IP number allocation and registration services to their Members. It was the third time APNIC has attended IRINN’s OPM since IRINN’s establishment in 2012 .

Dr Ajay Kumar spoke at the meeting about Digital India initiatives and encouraged everyone to participate in ICANN, IGF and APNIC discussions.

APNIC activities included:

  • Srinivas (Sunny) Chendi provided an update on the current deployment status of IPv6 for India, providing comparisons with leading countries in the Asia Pacific region and the world – 0.6% of India is IPv6 capable (APNIC Labs, November 2015)
  • Sunny met with staff from IRINN, as well as India’s National Internet Exchange (NIXI), Internet Service Providers Association (ISPAI) and ERNET to discuss RPKI implementation, IRINN’s whoIs database, the launch of INNOG in India, and IPv6 training.
