On December 10-11, the "2015 (Fifth) China Future Network Development and Innovation Forum" jointly hosted by the Chinese Academy of Engineering and the Nanjing Municipal People's Government was held in Nanjing.
Academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, the United States, Europe and Japan and other countries and regions such as future network project leaders, top experts in the field of information, mainstream operators at home and abroad, Internet giants, equipment vendors and other thousands of venues, focused on the future of network technology trends and In the future, the construction of network testing facilities will have a very technical outlook and a very “grounding gas” topic.
Mayor of Nanjing City, Rui Lin
The mayor of Nanjing, Ruilin Rui, said at the opening ceremony that countries and regions such as the United States, Europe and Japan have launched a series of national-level future network experimental facilities projects in recent years.
In academia, the future network has also become one of the hot topics in the international academic conference.
In the industry, many well-known companies at home and abroad have set off a wave of future capital M&A in the past two years, investing nearly 10 billion U.S. dollars in mergers and acquisitions, and AT&T, Google, Microsoft, IBM and other global mainstream operators and equipment vendors are seizing the field. Layout.
Under such a general trend, the State Council has included the project of future network testing facilities in the national major science and technology medium-term and long-term plans two years ago. The goal is to build an innovative, networked experimental environment that is open, easy to use, and sustainable. To explore innovative network architectures, core mechanisms, and key technologies to meet the experimental verification needs of China's and even global network evolution and revolutionary innovation research, and fundamentally solve the scalability, security, and manageability of existing networks. Problems in other areas provide a large-scale testing environment.
Mayor Ruilin specifically mentioned that in August this year, the National Development and Reform Commission made clear that the Jiangsu Institute of Future Network Innovation as a project legal person unit, and jointly initiated the “Future Network Experiment” jointly with Tsinghua University, China University of Science and Technology, and China Institute of Information and Communications. The research and establishment of the "facility project" symbolizes that we are starting the work of the network innovation experiment platform from the national strategic level, and will realize the interconnection and interoperability with the US, Europe, and Japan global platforms, and further the technological research and innovation in China. National space security provides important support.
Experts Gather Together to Discuss Future Network Planning
The Future Network Academic Forum has received extensive attention from the industry since its inception. More than ten academicians such as Liu Yunjie, Li Guojie, Fang Binxing, and Yan Jiangxing from the Chinese Academy of Engineering and senior experts from China Telecom, China Unicom, China Mobile, Tencent and JD.com attended the conference. Give a speech.
Academician Liu Yunjie
Academician Liu Yunjie said: "The future of the Internet is basically at the same time. This is a rare opportunity for China to seize the historical opportunity of overcoming the curve of the Internet and win the country's right to speak and take the initiative in the future network field. ”
The State Council has approved the Future Network as one of the 16 major scientific projects. At this forum, Academician Liu Yunjie also announced the overall goals of the future network, namely building 100 nodes (edge ​​networks) in 36 cities, and building four cloud data across the country. Center (Nanjing, Beijing, Hefei, Shenzhen). The network will support a variety of programmable technologies, support a variety of data plane equipment, provide a good experimental verification environment for the future network, is a fully open network.
For the specific time point that the network can be achieved in the future, Academician Li Guojie believes: “In the future, the network is not a distant matter. The trend of the Internet and 5G wireless network is basically clear. The network architecture will undergo disruptive changes in the next 5-10 years. Now To start preparations, the so-called innovation of the network architecture is not to modify or change which protocol, but to understand the perspective of the network.In the past 20 years, the network sector has mainly viewed the network from the data level, but now it is mainly from the control level. From the control point of view, the network IP protocol is no longer the focus of attention, and the key point is how the IP bearer network evolves smoothly to the SDN architecture.
Diverse activities to create a comprehensive industrial platform
In addition to academic and industry seminars, the Global SDN Testing and Certification Center of the Future Online Forum and ONF held the “China's First OpenFlow v1.3 Product Certification Award Ceremony”, with representatives from Huawei, ZTE, H3C, and Digital China. Obtained OpenFlow v1.3 conformity certificate and test report issued by ONF. The Global SDN Testing and Certification Center also released the “OpenFlow SDN Controller Performance Test Report” and provided free downloads, which greatly helped manufacturers fully understand the progress of the industry and the performance of open source controllers.
Off-site activities are also very exciting. Jiangsu Future Network Innovation Research Institute, Nanjing Future Network Industry Innovation Co., Ltd., H3C, ZTE, Brocade, Cedex, Dell, Spirent and other companies are displayed in the first floor exhibition hall. With their latest solutions, participating audiences and vendors conducted in-depth communication and exchanges on the latest technologies and business models of the future network. At the same time, the 11 devices that passed the OpenFlow v1.3 conformance certification and the on-going core-box switches and box-type switches were also displayed on the spot.
The test engineers and the manufacturers' engineers of the global SDN test and certification center introduced the SDN's latest products and technological advancements and solutions to the audience at the event site, further promoted the integration of industry and technology, and promoted the development and deployment of the SDN industry.
