100% by 2025: China getting serious about IPv6
With close to three quarters of a billion Internet users and billions of Internet of Things devices expected to connect to the Internet in the next five years, it’s little wonder why China is accelerating IPv6 deployment.
The Chinese government issued an ‘Action Plan for the Large-scale Deployment of IPv6’ in November 2017, which seeks to build the world’s largest IPv6 business network in the coming eight years. By the end of 2025, all networks and websites in China, with more than a billion users, will be running IPv6.
In this blog, Yuedong Zhang, Assistant Director of the System Operations, IP Business, Technical Administration at CNNIC, discusses the current state of the IPv6 deployment and gives some insight in what they expect to see in the next years.
