Cisco in bed with the commies!
NOTE: This is not intended to be serious. :) I think we should all boycott Cisco over this (not that I'd buy their products in the first place..) Their partnership with censors of a communist regime is repugnant. Using the modern technology to build a giant brainwashing machine is very scary. SAN JOSE, Calif. - June 17, 1997 - The Beijing Telecommunications Administration (BTA) has selected Cisco Systems' StrataCom(R) Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) switches for the city's first metropolitan-area network (MAN). The new multimillion-dollar ATM network will carry much of Beijing's Internet, corporate and intragovernmental data traffic. In addition to consolidating the capital's existing X.25 and low-speed data traffic, the network will provide Frame Relay services and citywide, high-speed data connectivity. -snip-
