Session Outline:
The IPv6 Initiative at ETSI (3GPP) is attracting a very good number of players (50) 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,
  • Document an automated networking e2e reference architecture, using IPv6;
  • Describe an IPv6 based specific deployment best practices / guidelines and transition tools for: (1) IPv4 to IPv6, (2) dual stack to IPv6 only;
  • Provide and demonstrate PoCs and test case descriptions to validate IPv6 standards based approaches.

Please see the progress achieved in the last 2 months since its first meeting in January 18, 2021 in the attached slides deck.
