National IPv6 Strategies and Migration Plans - ITU Telecom World, Doha 7 December 2014

601 views

Published on

The Importance of adopting, implementing and following up IPv6 migration at a country/national Level. IPv6 preparedness is increasingly urgent and growth of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority pool for available IPv4 addresses is already exhausted.

The Presentation provide guidance of what the issues to consider when planning and monitoring an IPv6 migration managed by different stakeholders .

National IPv6 Strategies and Migration Plans - ITU Telecom World, Doha 7 December 2014

  1. 1. Towards The Connected Society Adopting National IPv6 Strategies and Migration Plans Mohamed El Bashir Technical Affairs Dpt. Manager Communications Regulatory Authority “CRA”- State of Qatar
  2. 2. The Future is “Things in the Internet”, billons of connected devices Highly Integrated Network Always On World
  3. 3. Growth of the Connected Devices/Machines
  4. 4. What is the problem ?  7 billion cannot go into 4 billion 7 billion people and billions of devices online (e.g IoT, M2M)  3 Billion Internet users by November 2014
  5. 5. IPv6 offers a solution 5 ▪ Given that 7 billion can not go into 4 billion… –IPv6 solves this address scarcity problem by using 128-bit addressing creating a massively larger number of addresses (the actual number is typically described as 2 to the 128th power - or '340 trillion trillion trillion’ 340,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 –Approximately 5×1028 addresses for each of the roughly 7.2 billion people alive today –4.5x1015 addresses for every observable star in the known universe or an IP address for every grain of sand on earth!
  6. 6. Current IPv4 status ?  The IPv4 pool is now fully allocated – at least at the top level  An IPv4 secondary market has emerged  prices are not negotiable – average 5-10 USD (ISPs/operators started buying )  The Inter-RIR Transfer Policy is finalized  The good news is that almost all new CPEs are dual stack (IPv4/IPv6)
  7. 7. Why IPv6 Planning is important ▪ Huge mobile Internet growth ▪ Broadband and Fibre rollout ▪ Growth of Internet of Things “IoT” and Machine to Machine “M2M” ▪ Multistakeholder Model : o The Government ( e.g eGovernment, Gov.Networks, Systems, …etc ) o Critical Sectors ( e.gOil and Gas ) o Telecom Operators and ISPs o Universities and Academic Institutions ( e.g Research Networks )
  8. 8. Why has CRA undertaken this initiative?  Recognise the criticality of the Internet for the socio-economic development of the state of Qatar  Qatar has recently been globally ranked at 23 in the ‘most networked’ countries IPv6 will be a key factor in maintaining/building on this ranking  Important of Data networks in a modern society, including commerce, health, security, education etc.  A key task was to gather information on the current state of ‘IPv6 readiness’ across the various stakeholders involved with the IPv6 ecosystem
  9. 9. IPv6 Status Study  Assess Qatar’s IPv6 readiness among different stakeholders  Develop an IPv6 National Migration Implementation Plan and a Strategy  Move forward with IPv6 integration as part of enterprise architecture planning and the deployment of IPv6-enabled backbone networks  Start planning for the integration of applications and users in a dual-stacked (IPv4/IPv6) environment
  10. 10. Opportunity costs will Increase Over Time ▪ Extra costs and risks due to managing, securing, and extending an outdated IPv4 infrastructure ▪ Inability to integrate new applications and services requiring IPv6 features ▪ Loss of markets and customers due to outdated services ( e.g rollout of new telecom operations ) ▪ Inability to introduce new services – which require a high number of IP addresses ( e.g sensor-based applications ) ▪ Limited global connectivity as IPv4 address space is exhausted, and Internet growth moves over to IPv6
  11. 11. Early planning will help minimize IPv6 adoption costs IPv6 adoption - Areas Planned Adoption cycle 3-4 years Acceleration by 1 year IPv6 in ~ 2 Years Acceleration by 3 years IPv6 in ~ 1 Year Project Management Low Low High H/W & S/W Product Procurement Low Medium High Proprietary software – IPv6 adoption Low Medium High Security products procurement Low High High Network testing Low Medium High Staff costs - Deployment and rollout Low Medium High Staff costs - Maintaining network Performance Low Medium High Training (sales, marketing, and technical staff) Medium Medium High Cost implications Base line minimal costs 25% increase in the deployment costs 280% increase in the deployment costs
  12. 12. Ignoring IPv6 could have a serious impact on business ▪ The implementation of IPv6 should be carefully planned to minimise investment requirements and ensure IPv6 services are available in a timely manner for the organisation ▪ The operational and financial consequences of poor implementation planning are as follows – investment in non-IPv6-ready hardware could result in stranded assets that are written off prematurely – similarly, for operating systems and applications, IPv6 operability should be incorporated when upgrade or replacement takes place ▪ The resultant impact on revenues/profitability can be summarised as follows – unable to engage in e-business with organisations operating an IPv6-only infrastructure – loss of opportunity to launch IPv6-based services, e.g. hosting
  13. 13. Qatar National IPv6 Strategy & Migration Plan  National migration approach to IPv6, multi-stakeholder driven  3-5 Years Migration Plan  The strategy provide national implementation guidelines for each of the main stakeholder groups to ensure a coherent and coordinated approach o IPv6 Adoption Guide : Internet Service Providers o IPv6 Adoption Guide : System Vendors o IPv6 Adoption Guide : Network Providers o IPv6 Adoption Guide : Telecom Operators o IPv6 Adoption Guide : End Users  There are four basic stages, including Auditing, planning, implementation and launch  IPv6 Adoption Governance and Transition Management  Procurement Plan and Budget Planning  IPv6 Training Find it here : www.ictqatar.gov.qa ( search IPv6 )
  14. 14. IPv6 Implementation Plan  Multi-stakeholder Driven, Collaborative Approach  Details on the development of guidelines and plans  IPv6 Transformation Mechanisms  IPv6 Monitoring and Testing  Proposed Pilot Projects in Qatar
  15. 15. IPv6 Implementation Roadmap ▪ Proposed Implementation Roadmap for each stakeholder group
  16. 16. High Level Implementation Strategy
