China's Internet Revolution: Releasing The Power Of Data Transmission At Great Speed

The power of collaboration, Tsinghua University, China Mobile, Huawei Technologies, and Cernet Corporation have joined forces to bring to life the world's "fastest internet" network, with a data transmission speed that eclipses the current standard of major internet routes by an amazing tenfold.

This remarkable achievement of a collaborative effort between China's Tsinghua University, China Mobile, Huawei Technologies, and Cernet Corporation. With an impressive distance of over 3,000 kilometres, this groundbreaking network connects major cities like Beijing, Wuhan, and Guangzhou through a vast optical fibre cabling infrastructure.

This strategic connection between these prominent cities forms a crucial component of China's Future Internet Technology Infrastructure (FITI), a decade-long initiative that represents the latest advancement of the national China Education and Research Network (Cernet).

Since its initial operation in July, the network has not only surpassed all operational tests but has also consistently delivered exceptional performance and reliability. Wang Lei, Vice President of Huawei Technologies, reinforced the network's exceptional power by highlighting its ability to transfer an astounding amount of data, equivalent to 150 high-definition films, in a single second.

Wu Jianping, spearheading the Future Internet Technology Infrastructure project from the Chinese Academy of Engineering, celebrated the successful operation of the superfast Internet line, highlighting its significance in empowering China with the advanced technological capabilities to construct an even more rapid Internet infrastructure.

Xu Mingwei from Tsinghua University, employing a high-speed train analogy, emphasized that the new internet backbone effectively eliminates the need for 10 conventional tracks to deliver an equal amount of data.
