IPv6-based 5G, IoT, Cloud Computing and Blockchain

SESSION OUTLINE

The IPv6 Initiative at ETSI (3GPP) is attracting a very good number of players (100) including ISPs/Vendor/Academia from Europe, US and Asia to work on:

  • Identify gaps and recommendations of existing and required IPv6 standards both inside ETSI and in other SDOs;
  • Identify and describe IPv6 Network related use cases & specific scenarios, derived requirements and IPv6 networking challenges in the following areas:
    • IPv6-based 5G (and beyond 5G) IP transport and cloud & IP network convergence
    • IPv6-based enterprise networking and Industrial Internet
    • IPv6 cybersecurity and management,
    • IPv6-based Blockchain
  • Document an automated networking e2e reference architecture, using IPv6;
  • Describe an IPv6-based specific deployment best practices/guidelines and transition tools for
    • IPv4 to IPv6 and
    • dual-stack to IPv6 only;
  • Provide and demonstrate PoCs and test case descriptions to validate IPv6 standards-based approaches.
