In order to enhance China's international status in the world Internet development pattern and help China's next-generation Internet core technology breakthrough, China's first science and Technology Park focusing on IPv6 industrial innovation - "next generation Internet and major application technology innovation park" officially opened in Beijing on 28th.
The next generation Internet and major application technology innovation park is a key project of Zhongguancun Science City approved by Beijing municipal government and strongly supported by Haidian District government. It is jointly constructed by Tsinghua University and cel Network Co., Ltd.
The park is located in the north of Haidian District, Beijing, with a construction area of 105000 square meters. With the mission of "driving the development of the next generation Internet industry and serving the national network security strategy", relying on the scientific research technology strength and application demonstration effect of China Education and scientific research computer network, the park promotes the IPv6 industrial agglomeration at a high level, large scale and deep level, and creates a national IPv6 high-end talent gathering area and system The frontier of mechanism innovation and the birthplace of strategic emerging industries.
IPv6 is the abbreviation of "Internet Protocol version 6" (Internet Protocol version 6) in English. It is the next generation Internet protocol standard released by IETF to replace IPv4.
With the continuous development of the Internet, the lack of IPv4 address resources has seriously restricted the application and development of the Internet, countries around the world have launched IPv6. In 2017, China launched the "IPv6 scale deployment action plan" to seize the development opportunities brought about by the "rail switching" of the Internet from IPv4 to IPv6. 2020 is the key year of this plan, and the planned IPv6 active users will reach 500 million, accounting for 50% of China's Internet users.
According to the data, up to now, in terms of IPv6 technology research, China ranks second in the world, following the United States, followed by Germany, the United Kingdom, France and Russia.
As China's first science and Technology Park focusing on IPv6 technology innovation and industrial ecological development, the next generation Internet and major application technology innovation park will gather industrial resources, improve industrial ecology, and contribute new strength to the construction of "hard technology" and "new infrastructure" such as the Internet of things, artificial intelligence and other "new infrastructure" as well as the urgent needs of all kinds of industrial upgrading in the future economic and social development.
