pTLA 6bone request for CERNET in Beijing, China

The following request for a pTLA is self explanatory.  Please send any comments on this request either to me ([email protected]) or to the 6bone list.

I will process this (based on comments of course) on Monday, November 9, 1998.

>Dear Bob,
>We are writing to you because CERNET Center in Tsinghua University would 
>like to become one of the 6bone backbone sites. We are showing how CERNET 
>meets the criteria for pTLA assignment below.
>China Education and Research NETwork (CERNET) is the most important internet 
>of China in area of education and technology. The network centers (NIC and 
>NOC) of CERNET are laid in Tsinghua University, Beijing. Operating a 
>nation-wide internetwork, CERNET is active in computer networks research and 
>education, especially in next generation internet.  
>Information about CERNET: http://www.edu.cn/
>Information about Tsinghua University: http://www.tsinghua.edu.cn/
>Statement of meeting the criteria
> 1. Must have experience with IPv6 in the 6bone, at least as a leaf site,
>and preferably as an NLA transit under a pTLA.
>  We have begun IPv6 practice since January 1998. Our first ipv6 site -- 
>was registered on 6bone in June 1998. We are experimenting as:
>- NLA network (3FFE:1CF9::/32) under MERIT 
>- leaf site (3FFE:2900:FFF5::/48) under SPRINT
>- leaf site (3FFE:1108:40D::/48) under UUNET-UK
>  BGP4+ peers are established with MERIT and SPRINT.
>  An address prefix has been assigned for a site below our NLA and the 
>transit service has been provided.
> 2. Must have the ability and intent to provide "production-like" 6bone
> backbone service to provide a robust and operationally reliable 6bone 
> backbone.
>  CERNET Center has five years' experience in constructing and operating a 
>nation-wide internetwork. It has providing the production-like backbone 
>service in the range of education and research in China. There are many 
>professors and post-graduates from Tsinghua University, the most important 
>university in China, working in the NIC or NOC of the CERNET and taking 
>research on computer networks. 
> 3. Must have a potential "user community" that would be served by becoming
> a pTLA, e.g., the requester is a major player in a region, country or focus
> of interest.
>  Today CERNET has connected with over 70 cities in China, over 300 
>universities, colleges, research organizations and schools. There are over 
>150,000 of people using the networks in CERNET everyday.
> 4. Must commit to abide by whatever the 6bone backbone operational rules
> and policies are (currently there are no formal ones, but the Alain Duran
> draft is a start in trying to define some).
>  CERNET is an active part in international cooperation in networking. We 
>will commit to abide by any 6bone backbone operational rules and policies.
