China’s newly launched internet boasts download speed of 150 HD moves in one second

Beijing: Chinese tech giants have unveiled the world's fastest internet network, boasting a mind-boggling speed of 1.2 terabits per second.

Developed through a collaboration between Tsinghua University, China Mobile, Huawei Technologies, and Cernet Corporation, the network spans over 3,000 kilometres, seamlessly connecting Beijing, Wuhan, and Guangzhou through an extensive optical fibre cabling system.

This cutting-edge network surpasses current major internet routes by over tenfold, with the capacity to transmit data at a staggering 1.2 terabits per second, while most global internet backbone networks operate at just 100 gigabits per second.

The Beijing-Wuhan-Guangzhou connection is a pivotal component of China's ambitious Future Internet Technology Infrastructure, a decade-long initiative that marks the latest evolution of the national China Education and Research Network (Cernet).

Activated in July and officially launched this week, the network has aced all operational tests, proving its reliability and efficiency. Huawei Technologies' Vice President, Wang Lei, highlighted its speed by noting its capability to transfer the data equivalent of 150 high-definition films in just one second.

The domestically produced software and hardware mark a significant stride towards China's technological autonomy.

Xu Mingwei of Tsinghua University drew a parallel between the new internet backbone and a superfast train track, emphasizing its cost-effectiveness and manageability, effectively replacing the need for 10 regular tracks to carry the same data load.
