Internet Service Provider Operations: A Compilation on Networking and the Protracted IPv6 Migration

A collection of articles and webinars on the implementation of new protocols IPv6, New IP and DNS-over-HTTPS, as well as infrastructure solutions that optimize network performance.

Work of providers and telecom operators

  • Operator network requirements

    A webinar in which we talk about the requirements for the work of Internet providers and their infrastructure solutions. We touch upon issues such as working with Radius and maintaining NAT log. All this with diagrams and examples from practice. More thematic webinars can be found on our corporate website – there we talk about how to a provider configure QoE module and manage traffic (QoS) under increased load, when everyone is working from home.

  • How QoS Management Will Help Operators During a Pandemic

    Since the beginning of the year, telecom operators have recorded a stable increase in the load on their networks – sometimes by 20-30%. We are talking about how to preserve Quality of Experience under the new conditions using QoS systems, when the provider restricts low-priority traffic in order to “give way” to high-priority traffic. Using the example of one of the largest Internet providers in the Middle East, we show how to independently configure QoS.

  • On acquisitions in the domestic market of network solutions

    We are talking about the landmark deals that the manufacturers of telecommunications equipment in Russia have concluded over the past few years. The material is devoted to company acquisitions, technological developments and their prospects.

A few words about protocols

  • The transition to IPv6 could take another ten years

    So says Marko Hohewoning, RIPE’s Internet Registrar. According to him, during this time providers and telecoms will be able to get rid of the dual stack. But many consider Marco’s assessment too optimistic – the massive transition to IPv6 could be hampered by technical difficulties with migration and the instability of the protocol (it still there are bugs).

  • Who is implementing IPv6 – from companies to entire countries

    We continue the topic of migration to a new generation protocol. We talk about telecoms, providers, IT companies and states that are introducing IPv6 – for example, Belarus, which was the first in the world to secure support for the sixth version of the protocol at the legislative level. A similar bill is now being promoted in the United States.

  • How DNS-over-HTTPS is being implemented

    More and more browser developers are adding DoH support to their products: Mozilla, Google, Brave. But some ISPs and telecom companies are opposed to the new protocol. DNS-over-HTTPS will harm the security of users on the network and could even lead to centralized traffic – if major browser makers use influence to promote their DNS servers, they said.

  • How the IT community is responding to the New IP initiative

    The TCP / IP model has existed since 1972, over the past 50 years in it discovered many vulnerabilities – including critical ones related to authentication. To solve the problem, Chinese engineers proposed a new standard – New IP. However, some experts see it as a threat to the “openness” of the Internet. In this article, we discuss the prospects for the protocol.
