The APNIC Foundation is pleased to announce its inaugural round of ISIF Asia IPv6 Deployment grant recipients to be supported as part of our Infrastructure program. These four organizations are strong ambassadors for IPv6 deployment in the Asia Pacific.
We look forward to sharing updates as they make progress with deployments, and we hope to see more organizations adopting IPv6 and following in their footsteps in years to come!
- BOOM! Inc., Micronesia: USD 250,000
- Tonga Communication Corporation, Tonga: USD 250,000
- National Institute of Technology Karnataka, Surathkal, India: USD 240,000
- Yayasan Badan Wakaf Universitas Islam Indonesia, Indonesia: USD 60,000
The projects by BOOM! Inc. and Tonga Communication Corporation both have a strong focus on building local expertise and using their deployment experience to empower others in the Pacific to be more self-sufficient in developing and maintaining their network infrastructure.
The projects led by National Institute of Technology Karnataka (in partnership with India Internet Engineering Society – IIESoc) and Universitas Islam Indonesia (in partnership with the Indonesia Network Information Centre – IDNIC), will focus on deployment in the academic sector, including training for students and early-career engineers as part of their projects.
Plans are underway for offering continuing support for IPv6 deployment in 2023. Please check our website early next year to see how you can apply!
