 Ministry of industry and Information Technology Wen Ku: strive to promote IPv6 industry from access to traffic

At present, the construction of new infrastructure represented by 5g, data center and Internet of things continues to accelerate, Renren Internet speeds up to move forward to the Internet of things. IPv6 can provide a large number of network addresses, and can provide a good technical foundation for network routing optimization and efficient traffic control. It is the inevitable requirement for the evolution and upgrading of information infrastructure and the start of accelerating new infrastructure and realizing the interconnection of all things Points and key elements. Developing the next generation Internet based on IPv6 is not only the inevitable trend of Internet evolution and upgrading, but also an important measure to implement the strategy of network power. It is of great significance to improve Chinas Internet carrying capacity and service level, help the economic and social digital transformation, and support high-quality economic development.

In November 2017, the general office of the CPC Central Committee and the general office of the State Council issued the action plan for promoting the scale deployment of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) (hereinafter referred to as the action plan), which clearly put forward the overall goal, roadmap, timetable and important tasks of the next generation Internet development based on IPv6 in the next five to ten years in China, and comprehensively sounded the call for China to vigorously promote the rise of IPv6 Its a charge in the battle of level 1 transformation.

Since the release of the action plan, remarkable achievements have been made in the scale deployment of IPv6 in China, mainly in the following four aspects: 1

First, in terms of infrastructure, the upgrading of fixed broadband and lteipv6 has been fully completed, the network quality of IPv6 is basically similar to that of IPv4, and the special line service of IPv6 has the ability of national service.

Second, in terms of application infrastructure, basic telecom enterprises have completed the IPv6 transformation of all data centers, and other data center operators have completed the IPv6 transformation of large data centers. The top ten content distribution network enterprises (CDN enterprises) have averagely more than 70% of the resources, coverage and performance of IPv6, and the main public cloud products of the top ten cloud service enterprises are basically completed It has become the upgrade of IPv6.

Third, in the terminal and industry applications. Since 2018, mobile terminal manufacturers with large market share have fully supported IPv6 in their newly released models and systems. Mainstream smart home gateway devices in the market fully support IPv6. Some wireless router manufacturers default configuration supports both IPv4 and IPv6 dual stacks. Basic telecom enterprises, portal websites and proprietary apps have also completed the transformation of IPv6 according to the national requirements.

Fourth, in terms of IPv6 users and traffic, as of July 2020, the proportion of LTE users with IPv6 addresses allocated nationwide exceeded 90%, and the proportion of home broadband users assigned IPv6 addresses exceeded 50%. Compared with the beginning of 2018, the growth rate of active users connecting to the Internet through IPv6 was more than 20 times higher than that at the beginning of 2018. The total IPv6 traffic of backbone direct connection points increased more than 10 times compared with the beginning of 2018, and LTE core network and IPv6 inflow traffic Compared with the inflow of IPv4, it has exceeded 10% from less than 1% at that time.

After nearly three years of efforts, China has built the largest IPv6 network infrastructure in the world, and the total amount of IPv6 address application resources ranks the second in the world. At the same time, Wenku pointed out: we should also be soberly aware that the scale deployment of IPv6 in China still has a long way to go, and there is still a certain gap between China and the worlds leading countries in terms of the proportion of active IPv6 users and traffic. In the next step, we will comprehensively promote the scale deployment of IPv6 from the four aspects of cloud, management, end-to-end and use in accordance with the objectives and tasks of the action plan From the access road to open to traffic, the industry is mainly deployed in the following four aspects:

First, continue to improve the service level of IPv6 network. Taking the typical Internet application as the rake direction, further strengthen the monitoring and diagnosis of the network, especially the capillary network, aiming at the short board and weak links in the network, continuously optimize the network routing of IPv6, improve the network performance, improve the quality of service, accelerate the proportion of IPv6 service resources in the application infrastructure, expand the coverage of IPv6 services, and optimize the acceleration performance of IPv6 applications To help Internet applications accelerate the pace of IPv6 users to release traffic.

The second is to enhance the support capability of fixed terminal IPv6. Promote the upgrading and replacement of existing smart home gateway IPv6, expand the scale of fixed broadband users with IPv6 addresses, continue to carry out the evaluation and release of home wireless router IPv6, and promote the e-commerce platform to give priority to recommending home wireless router devices supporting IPv6.

The third is to guide the application ecology to upgrade to IPv6, promote the basic telecom enterprises to continue to do a good job in portal website, self operated app in-depth transformation, cooperate with the central network information office to steadily improve the IPv6 support of various commercial websites and apps, drive the scale and flow of IPv6 users, promote the detection and identification of IPv6 support in major application stores, and create a sustainable and healthy next generation Internet The ecological environment of development.

Fourth, strengthen the monitoring of IPv6 user traffic. Guide China Academy of communications and communications to continuously improve the IPv6 development monitoring platform, further strengthen the real-time monitoring of key indicators such as users and traffic in accordance with the sinking and detailed IPv6 support standard system and target tasks, regularly issue authoritative national IPv6 development index reports, and urge and guide relevant units to complete the transformation tasks according to the quality.

Wen Ku said: at present, it is the closing year of the second stage of the implementation of the IPv6 scale deployment action plan, and it is also a critical period for rolling stones to climb the mountain and cross the ridge. Lets keep an eye on the target and task, pay close attention to the implementation of responsibilities, and jointly do a good job in promoting the scale deployment of IPv6, so as to make IPv6 a real vehicle on the IPv6 highway, so as to speed up the construction of a network power and promote the high-quality development of Chinas economy Make greater contributions.
