100% of Internet Subscribers in Vietnam to Use IPv6 service by 2025

Vietnam is working towards the goal of becoming one of the world's leading countries in converting the Internet to IPv6 by 2025.
January 19, 2024 | 14:55

This is the statement from the National Information and Communications Infrastructure Planning for the period 2021-2030, with a vision to 2050.

In particular, Vietnam's Deputy Prime Minister Tran Luu Quang recently signed Decision No. 36/QD-TTg on "Information and communications infrastructure planning for the period 2021-2030, vision to 2050" to develop a synchronous, modern postal network, connecting the real world and the digital world. This will become one of the essential infrastructures of the country and the digital economy.

The postal network planning has a focus on redundancy to ensure an intact, uninterrupted supply chain in case of emergency. It strives to build 3-5 regional postal centers across the country by 2030. The average exploitation capacity of the Postal Center is expected to reach over 15,750 tons of parcels sent/day, while the regional postal centers can have an average capacity of over 5,000 tons of parcels sent per day.

Entering top 20 in the world in converting the Internet to IPv6

To make the top 20 countries in converting the Internet to IPv6 by 2025, the broadband telecommunications network in Vietnam must ensure large capacity, high speed, modern technology, and widely integrated Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure for harmonious development, well serving digital transformation and digital government as well as digital economy, digital society, and security and defense. It must reach 100% of high-tech parks, concentrated information technology parks, research, development, and innovation centers by 2025 to have access to the Internet with a minimum speed of 1Gb/second. Also, it must deploy and invest in 2-4 additional international telecommunications cable lines.

Forming national data centers

Another important task is to form and deploy national data centers for data centers and cloud computing infrastructure. Vietnam strives to form large-scale data centers, following green standards, and closely following energy zone planning; to ensure data centers are synchronously connected, connected with mutual redundancy capabilities. This will support promoting the development of the big data industry and im proving the performance of existing data centers.

The requirement is that by 2025, national data centers will be established and deployed as infrastructure to serve national databases and other shared databases according to the provisions of the law. Vietnam will form at least 3 national multi-purpose data center clusters. Multi-purpose data center clusters will be formed at the regional level.

Also, 100% of Government agencies use the cloud computing ecosystem to serve the digital Government and 70% of Vietnamese businesses use cloud computing services provided by domestic businesses.

Regarding infrastructure building, Vietnam prioritizes "doing first, doing well", which means focusing on digital platforms with national-scale infrastructure to serve many applications, services, and contributors. Information technology application infrastructure plays a crucial role as a shared digital platform for many socio-economic fields, serving essential social activities in the digital environment.

Strongly enhance digital technology applications in all fields

According to the planning, the information technology industry will be based on digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, cloud computing, and IoT. The strong application of digital technology will seem all areas of economic and social life to form a digital technology industry in Vietnam.

The digital technology industry develops rapidly and sustainably from assembly and processing it will shift to creating "Make in Vietnam" electronic, telecommunications, and information technology products and services. It will contribute to creating new development space for the country.

The plan sets a goal that by 2050, information and communications infrastructure will ensure increased intelligence based on data and new technologies. The information and communications infrastructure will be green and adapt to climate change. It will help cover and connect multiple spatial levels (water surface, water bed, ground surface, underground space, air space) and multi-dimensional between levels. It will also securely merge the physical world with the digital world to adapt to all complex and urgent changes and expand operating space. Digital technology applications must meet sustainable development in all aspects of political, economic, social, environmental, security, and defense.
