Question 7/13 – Impact of IPv6 to an NGN
(Continuation of Question 9/13)

Motivation

The IPv6 is one of the useful delivery protocols for the future fixed and wireless/mobile network environments. From service and application aspects, the necessity of IPv6 will be increasing for the future networking including the ubiquitous network.

During the 2005–2008 study period of ITU-T, Q.9/13 has defined IPv6-based NGN which supports addressing, routing, protocols and services associated with IPv6 and been developing the related draft recommendations with alignment of the reference model and functional architecture of NGN for analyzing impact of IPv6 to an NGN.

To cope with increasing end users/devices, we have to concentrate on more practical solutions to realize IPv6-based NGN according to requirements and functional capabilities developed by Q.9/13. The extension of IPv6 issues could be necessary for supporting the future network environments.

Recommendations under responsibility of this Question include:

  • Y.2051, General overview of IPv6-based NGN
  • Y.2052, Framework of multi-homing in IPv6-based NGN
  • Y.2053, Functional requirements for IPv6 migration in NGN
  • Y.2054, Framework to support signalling for IPv6 based NGN

Question

Study items to be considered include, but are not limited to:

  • What new Recommendations or enhancements to existing Recommendations are needed to provide general overview of IPv6 based NGN, framework to support signalling for IPv6 based NGN, framework of multi-homing in IPv6-based NGN, and functional requirements for IPv4/IPv6 migration in NGN?
  • What new Recommendations are needed to provide IP based ID/locator separation in NGN?
  • What new Recommendations are needed to provide protocol procedure and mechanisms for identification/naming/DNS extension using IPv6?
  • What new Recommendations are needed to provide host and network mobility, dynamical management and auto-configuration in IPv6-based NGN environment?
  • What new Recommendations are needed to provide QoS support in IPv6-based NGN environment?
  • What new Recommendations are needed to provide incremental deployment scenarios and strategy towards IPv6-based NGN?
  • What enhancements to existing Recommendations are required to provide energy savings directly or indirectly in information and communication technologies (ICTs) or in other industries? What enhancements to developing or new Recommendations are required to provide such energy savings?

Tasks

Tasks include, but are not limited to:

  • Development of new draft Recommendations on naming and addressing issues for IPv6 based NGN. The expected time frame for completion is the middle of 2010.
  • Development of new draft Recommendations on host and network mobility support in IPv6 based NGN environments. The expected time frame for completion is the middle of 2010.
  • Development of new draft Recommendation on dynamical management and auto-configuration in IPv6 based NGN environments. The expected time frame for completion is the middle of 2009.
  • Development of new draft Recommendation on QoS support in IPv6-based NGN environments. The expected time frame for completion is the middle of 2010.
  • Development of new draft Recommendation on incremental deployment scenarios and strategy towards IPv6 based NGN. The expected time frame for completion is the middle of 2009.

Relationships

Close cooperation with other ITU-T study groups (for services and applications) and other organizations must take place.
