From the good relationships developed between EU and Chinese NRENs during the ORIENT and ORIENTplus projects, and following the TNC BoF in 2016, a number of areas of interest for technical collaboration have been identified. These include the following:
- IPv4/IPv6 translation services
This is an area where CERNET has considerable experience and expertise. Work is underway to evaluate whether the GÉANT community can benefit from these capabilities.
This is being pursued in the frame of GÉANT’s SIG-PMV.
This is being pursued between GÉANT’s and CERNET’s information security functions.
- Capacity planning
This is being pursued through bilateral and trilateral discussions between GÉANT, CERNET and CSTNET.
If any member of the EU/China NRENs wishes to find out more about any of these areas, or has ideas for further potential technical collaborations please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org
