Introduction Inaugurated as the National Center of Excellence for IPv6 Deployment (NAv6) in Malaysia on 18 March 2005 History…. Prior to its establishment, NAv6 was known as NRG (Network Research Group) with core research areas spanning multitude networking domains including Real-time Multimedia, Network Monitoring, Satellite Communications and Next Generation Network. The results and outcomes culminated from these research activities often received accolades from the computer science community. With the advent of IPv6, NRG had a paradigm shift towards IPv6 as to spearhead and prepare the nation for the next generation Internet technology as a result of implementation of IPv6 through various R&D activities, hence the formation of NAv6…
Objectives of The Center • Core R&D and Middleware Development To commit to continuous research, experiment and development of new applications as well as the porting of existing applications to the new IPv6 specifications. • Training and Human Resource Providing the necessary environment and course structures to train and nurture IPv6 programmers and experts for Malaysia and the region. • Monitoring and Audit To study and monitor the impact of the protocol transition particularly for Malaysia and monitor regional development. This is to ensure Malaysia's growth commitment and international connectivity in this area. • Awareness and Promotion Providing the necessary structure to promote awareness of IPv6 and IPv6 usage .
