Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: Promote Mobile Devices to Fully Support IPv6
On May 2, the website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued a notice on the implementation of the Action Plan for the Advancement of the Sixth Edition of the Internet Protocol (IPv6) Deployment. This Circular encouraged the encouragement of typical industries and key industrial enterprises to carry out the transformation of the industrial Internet IPv6 network and create innovative industrial Internet applications. Practice to build an industrial Internet IPv6 standard system.
IPv6 is the sixth version of the IP address protocol. It is a next-generation Internet core protocol designed by the Internet Standardization Organization IETF to replace the current version of IPv4. Its biggest advantage is that it can provide a large number of IP addresses. Grain sand is compiled on a website.
The massive address space provided by IPv6 is in line with the needs and trends of the current Internet development. Even under the emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and big data, IPv6 can meet the demand.
Promote mobile terminals to fully support IPv6
The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology proposed yesterday that IPv6 plans will be implemented in six areas, including the implementation of the end-to-end IPv6 transformation of LTE networks, the acceleration of fixed-network infrastructure IPv6 transformation, the promotion of the application infrastructure IPv6 transformation, the implementation of the government website IPv6 transformation and industrial Internet IPv6 applications, and enhancements. IPv6 network security protection and implementation of supporting safeguards.
According to the notice, by the end of 2018, the basic telecom companies completed the nationwide LTE core network, access network, bearer network, and business operation support system, etc., and transformed IPv6 to carry out IPv6 service bearer functions to allocate IPv6 addresses for mobile terminal user data services. End-to-end IPv6 access channel; basic telecom companies complete the IPv6 transformation of portal websites and online business offices, and complete the top 10 self-operated mobile internet applications (APP) and corresponding system server IPv6 upgrade of active users, by the end of 2018 The number of mobile Internet IPv6 users is no less than 50 million.
The notice also stated that the mobile terminal fully supports IPv6. The factory default configuration of the newly-produced mobile terminal supports IPv4/IPv6 dual stack, and gradually promotes the opening of the IPv6 function of the existing mobile terminal through system software upgrade. Mobile terminals that are customized and centrally purchased by basic telecom companies should fully support IPv6.
In addition, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology proposed that the data center newly put into production from 2018 should support IPv6, and by the end of 2020, all large-scale data center operating companies have completed the transformation of IPv6.
IPv6 will provide massive network addresses
Last year, the “Implementation Plan for the Advancement of the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) Scale Deployment” was published. The document pointed out that the Internet based on the fourth edition of the Internet Protocol (IPv4) is faced with constraining issues such as the exhaustion of network addresses and the inability to guarantee quality of service. IPv6 can provide sufficient network addresses and vast space for innovation. It is a globally recognized solution for next-generation Internet business applications.
Vigorously developing the next-generation Internet based on IPv6 will help to significantly improve the carrying capacity and service level of China’s Internet and better integrate it into the Internet. The above document proposes that it will take 5 to 10 years to form the next-generation Internet independent technology system and industrial ecology, build the world’s largest industrial Pv6 commercial application network, and realize the next-generation Internet’s deep integration and application in various fields of economy and society.
According to public information, the second-generation Internet IPv4 technology currently used belongs to the United States. In theory, it can address 16 million networks and 4 billion hosts. Of these, North America occupies 3/4, about 3 billion, and the most populous in Asia is less than 400 million. China has only 30 million. The lack of network addresses has restricted the application and development of China’s Internet.
Liu Qicheng, a communication expert, stated that “The IPv4 website is far from enough. Now that China’s broadband is developing rapidly, many broadband networks are used as intranet websites. Many people share an IP address, which is very inconvenient. There will be a fixed URL.”
