New online portal on IRINN website has been launched by NIXI
Indians seeking request for IP addresses can now avail this service with National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) automating the process of providing IP Addresses to Indians by launching a new portal on the Indian Registry for Internet Names and Numbers (IRINN) website.
NIXI became National Internet Registry (NIR) of the country after being recognised by Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC). Later NIR was named IRINN. Along with other Internet resource management functions nationally, this entrusts NIXI with the task of allocation and registration services of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and Autonomous System (AS) numbers.
Aiming to make the process of securing IP addresses easy and user-friendly, NIXI has launched this portal with technological advancement. A hard copy of the requests and other documents were asked to be sent by the applicants prior to this in order to undergo a manual screening, taking anywhere between 8-10 days of time. Applicants can complete the process of getting their IP addresses, through this initiative within two days in India.
Two types of IP addresses i.e., IPv4 and IPv6 are currently provided by NIXI. Giving users additional benefits, IPv6 is a more advanced service. These benefits include end-to-end connection integrity, more efficient routing and multi-casting, among other services.
IRINN contributes to society by providing Internet-related information as a non-profit, affiliation-based organization, and performing research, education, and enlightenment activities.
