In order to accelerate the scale deployment of the next generation Internet based on Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), promote the popularization of IPv6 application, and promote the coordinated development of IPv6 technology, industry, network and application, the Expert Committee on promoting IPv6 scale deployment held "2020 (the third) China IPv6 Development Forum" in Beijing on August 28, 2020.
Yang Xiaowei, deputy director of the central network information office and deputy director of the state network and information office, Wen Ku, director of the information and Communication Development Department of the Ministry of industry and information technology, and you Zheng, vice president of Tsinghua University and academician of the Chinese Academy of engineering, attended and addressed the Forum. Wu Hequan, director of Expert Committee for promoting IPv6 scale deployment, academician of Chinese Academy of engineering, and Wu Jianping, director of CERNET Network Center, academician of Chinese Academy of engineering and professor of Tsinghua University, delivered keynote speeches. The information disclosure Office of the general office of the State Council, the science and Technology Department of SARFT, and representatives from key fields made typical speeches and exchanged experiences.
In his speech, you said, general secretary Xi Jinping attached great importance to the development of the next generation Internet industry in China. Many times clearly supported the next-generation Internet as a new generation of information technology basic science and technology field in China. From the national strategic level, it stressed the importance of the next generation Internet in the key core technology area of our network space. The development and application of the next generation Internet has become one of the focal points and breakthrough points for China to continuously enhance its future scientific and technological competitiveness and play an increasingly important role in the world Internet pattern.
As the first university to carry out research on IPv6 core technology in China, Tsinghua University has actively participated in the research on the development strategy of next generation Internet of IPv6 in China since 2000. In 2003, Tsinghua University United 100 colleges and universities to undertake the research task of China's next generation Internet demonstration project solid network CERNET2. In 2008, the world's largest IPv6 demonstration network was built, and the next generation Internet has always been the focus of Tsinghua University and a number of universities in the field of engineering research.
You Zheng said that over the past 20 years, it has cultivated a large number of young backbone, doctors and masters, and has become a training base for China's Internet high-end talents. At the same time, it has formed a core technology system of the next generation Internet with 23 international standards, such as the real source address authentication two-generation network transition technology. At the same time, Tsinghua University, together with domestic universities, has carried out IPv6 application demonstration project, established the Joint Laboratory of next generation Internet technology and its application with China Telecom, and carried out large-scale application and industrialization research, which has had an important impact at home and abroad.
You Zheng pointed out that at present, the world's Internet is in the critical period of switching from IPv4 to IPv6, which is also a golden opportunity for Internet technology innovation. Chinese governments at all levels attach great importance to the development of IPv6 next generation Internet technology. With the support of relevant departments in Beijing and Haidian District, Qinghua University and cel Network Co., Ltd. jointly built the next generation Internet and major application technology innovation park To promote the innovation and leapfrog development of China's Internet and its application from the perspective of optimizing industrial institutions, and enhance China's core competence in this field, so as to gain advantages in the new round of international Internet competition.
