Technical Collaborations

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.
  • Measurement
    This is being pursued in the frame of GÉANT’s SIG-PMV.
  • Security
    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
