The Global Network Technology Conference (GNTC) was opened few days ago. Since its inception three years ago, GNTC has emerged as an important indicator of network technology development. More importantly, it has become an important platform for interactions and communication between international organizations worldwide. This year’s event brings together experts from such international organizations as ONF, MEF, IPv6 Forum, Wide Research Co., Ltd. and ISOC to share their insights on network technology with the audience.
It is reported that China Future Internet Engineering Center (CFIEC) released the 2018 SDN+NFV+IPv6 Fest White Paper at the GNTC, which is a summary of the outcomes from the SDN+NFV+IPv6 Fest test activity concluded last month. In the meantime, CFIEC also released the third-party test reports for DCN, H3C and Alibaba Cloud, and demonstrated the test activity in a comprehensive way through Showcase and network test Workshop. In addition, the experts made an on-site inspection on all DCN’s products and gave their heartfelt praise. This is a full recognition of DCN’s researches and products in IPv6.
2018 SDN+NFV+IPv6 Fest White Paper Released
At the launch ceremony, CFIEC Chief Engineer Li Zhen reviewed the overall conditions of the test activity, and elaborated on the contents of the white paper, including test environment, test contents and test outcomes. “The SDNFV Fest test activity has been conducted for years successively. We have seen constant improvement in the maturity and overall performance of tested products and solutions. Some participants even ran tests on a whole line of products. This is sufficient to demonstrate that such techniques as SDN, NFV and IPv6 have entered the phase of application,” said Li Zhen at the ceremony.
It is reported that under the support of such operators and technological organizations as CTBRI, China Unicom, ETSI, IPv6 Forum, ONF, OPNFV and China CORD Industry Alliance, DCN, H3C, Alibaba Cloud, FiberHome, Chudian Hudong, IXIA and Xinertel participated in the test activity. CFIEC also demonstrated the test activity in a comprehensive way through Showcase and network test Workshop at the event. “The SDNFV Fest test activity has been conducted for years in a row. We have seen constant improvement in the maturity and overall performance of tested products and solutions. Some participants even ran tests on a whole line of products. This is sufficient to demonstrate that such techniques as SDN, NFV and IPv6 have entered the phase of application,” said Li Zhen at the ceremony.
DCN’s Exchange IPv6 Safety Protection Solution Draws Attention
In addition to keynote speeches and roundtable forums, this year’s conference also set up a series of workshops to ensure face-to-face exchange of views and communication among attendees. At this conference, the host, operators and equipment manufacturers summarized the 2018 SDN+NFV+IPv6 test activity and shared the highlights and new test items of the test activity.
DCN also participated and shared its successful cases at the event. The technical representative from DCN elaborated on various safety risks that may be encountered in the evolution of IPv6, and DCN’s solutions such as basic IPv6 network LAN-side equipment access, all-around IPv6 management channel support, complete IPv6 basic safety protection system, cloud-based perception of network threat situations and centralized risk control. The national IPv6 deployment policy states that 500 million users will have access to IPv6 by 2020 and IPv6 network will cover the entire country by the end of 2025. DCN is ready to contribute to the upcoming IPv6 infrastructure initiative.
For years, DCN has been committed to the research and development of IPv6 products. Since the introduction of IPv6 exchange in 2004, DCN has passed the IPv6 Ready certification, IPv6 Ready enhanced certification, and DHCPv6 IPv6 SNMP test.
Going forward, DCN will stay committed to the innovation and design of solutions based on scenarios, provide industry users with end-to-end solutions, and contribute to the digital transformation and upgrading within the industry. DCN will continue to explore opportunities in sectors, work with users to identify targeted solutions, help users simplify work and create values, and enable the IT upgrading of enterprises. In the meantime, DCN will continue to adapt to the national strategy and meet the demands of the times by taking the widespread deploy of IPv6 as an opportunity, focusing on the network demands of the industry, and cementing its status as a qualified industry+ digital solution provider.
