Huawei Xu Zhijun: New IP is a purely technical topic

With the human beings about to move towards the Internet of Everything, the Internet, virtual integration of intelligent all-connected world, in the face of the new generation, new business, new needs, the traditional IP network has long appeared to be out of reach, how to let the IP network in the inheritance of the past success gene on the basis of continued development to meet the new demand of the future industrial Internet, promote the digitalization of the industry , become the industry to think about the topic.

Huawei has joined forces with china Unicom, China Telecom and other operators to propose to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to re-engineer the Internet with a new standard for core network technology, “New IP,”media reported.

In response, at a media question-and-answer session at Huawei’s 2019 annual report launch this week, Xu Zhijun, Huawei’s rotating chairman, said: New IP is only a purely technical issue and don’t politicize new IP in the first place.

Huawei Xu Zhijun: New IP is a purely technical topic

Today’s IP technology began in 1969, the protocol was established in 1978, and has been in the past 50 years for more than 50 years, with great success. The original IP technology focused on the global computer link, mainly in the office field, and later extended to the mobile Internet, all mobile phones can be connected, over the years, traditional IP technology has been unable to meet the rapid development of industrial Internet on low latency, security and a series of needs.

“The goal of 5G is also to further meet the industry-oriented low latency and large connectivity of the Internet of Things on top of the growing consumer demand for mobile broadband. Therefore, New IP is the same, in addition to meeting the needs of mobile Internet and office, but also to meet the needs of the industrial Internet, such as low latency, security and other needs. Xu Zhijun revealed: “New IP name I took, because at that time in 5G research, 5G called New Radio, I think the future of IP and 5G’s future mission is similar, why not call New IP?” New Radio for New IP, which is the corresponding 5G. “

“New IP has been a research topic until now, and Huawei’s IP experts are working with scientists and engineers around the world,” Xu stressed. IP experts from various countries, including Italy, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Belgium, Spain and other countries, are freely involved in research and innovation, hoping to jointly solve the future-oriented problems of IP networks, so that New IP in order to meet the needs of traditional IP, further meet the needs of the industrial Internet. “

Regarding all kinds of speculation from the outside world, especiallymedia, Xu Zhijun reiterated: “New IP is only a purely technical subject, don’t politicize new IP in the first place, don’t think that experts have so many unspeakable purposes, we are just to solve the problem of IP facing the future, to carry out free research and discussion, It’s not as complicated as you think, not as many political issues as you might imagine, and we shouldn’t politicize the technical topics you’re studying. “
