  PRC: World leader in next generation Internet

Source: People's Daily

"PRC has successfully built its next generation Internet with  
Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6), replacing Internet Protocol  
Version 4(IPv4), to become the world leader in this field. China's  
next generation Internet, or CNGI, has a new search system structure  
and a special method for the transition between the two Internet  
generations. It is estimated that CNGI will transmit information  
1,000 times faster, at a speed of 40 gigabytes per second.

CNGI has more safety features, is easier to manage and has an almost  
inexhaustible supply of Internet addresses. Experts say this  
development is of strategic significance as China will no longer need  
to rely on foreign technology for Internet construction."
