Zhang Feng, the chief engineer of the Ministry of industry and information technology, introduced at the meeting. At present, China's basic telecom enterprises have completed 26 provinces and hundreds of cities LTE (4G) network IPv6 transformation, and the total number of users assigned to the IPv6 address is over 70 million.
By the end of 2018, the number of active users in IPv6 will reach 200 million, and the proportion of the Internet users is not less than 20%, according to the development goal proposed by the sixth edition of the Internet Protocol (IPv6) deployment plan.
Shao Guanglu, deputy general manager of China Unicom, said China Unicom has provided LTE network IPv6 data services in the 15 provinces (cities) of Beijing, Guangdong, Shandong, Hubei and other cities (cities), and can provide fixed broadband network IPv6 services in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Ji'nan, Qingdao.
At present, the global Internet based on the fourth edition of Internet Protocol (IPv4) is faced with the constraints of the depletion of network addresses and the difficulty of guaranteeing the quality of service. The IPv6 can provide sufficient network address and vast innovation space. It is recognized as the global business solution for the next generation of Internet.
Huang Chengqing, vice president of China Internet association, said that the proportion of Chinese IPv6 users was less than 1%, and the popularity rate ranked seventieth in the world. Now, 32 countries account for more than 50% of IPv6 users. The development of IPv6 in China is at the best time.
Promoting the deployment of IPv6 scale is a huge and arduous systematic project. According to Zhang Feng, the Ministry of industry and information technology will support the basic telecom enterprises to take the lead in the transformation of network and self operating system, fully realize the end to end network and provide IPv6 services to users as soon as possible; implement the IPv6 application and deployment of industrial Internet, support the typical industry and key industrial enterprises to carry out the IPv6 network transformation of industrial Internet. Implement IPv6 network security promotion plan, strengthen IPv6 network security capability building, strictly implement IPv6 network address coding plan and so on.
