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.
