Internet Connectivity in China

CDS offers Internet accessibility with direct BGP peering to all four Tier 1 carriers in mainland China as well as all local carriers assuring the best and fastest coverage nationwide.  

If you are unfamiliar with China’s Internet you may wonder why BGP peering matters. The Internet infrastructure in China is very different than in the rest of the world. In China, there are only four major providers: China Telecom, China Unicom, China Netcom and Education Net (CERNET). Despite the enormous demands made by cross-network traffic, these four networks are connected to each other by only three primary access points rather than a full mesh topology like the rest of the world. Due to the limited bandwidth at these access points, cross-network traffic often experiences substantial delays.

Without multi-line BGP, even local Internet traffic would have to go through an access point which might be thousands of miles away. Over the last 15 years, CDS has developed direct peering agreements with all Tier 1 providers and the local carriers assuring direct connections between carriers.

For example, a China Unicom user can ping a server in the same city on CERNET, and experience up to a 400ms delay. The data must travel on the China Unicom AS to the connecting node which might be a thousand miles away to access CERNET, then travel back on the CERNET sub-network to the server.

With multi-line BGP, the same ping would only take 20-30ms.

Global BGP Peeromg  Global BGP

Recommended for any office in mainland China requiring fast, reliable Internet access from China to the world.

Global BGP peering acts as a dedicated international gateway and is designed for use by international enterprises using CDS’ Beijing Data Center as their IT hub. Global BGP provides Internet access from China to anywhere in the world with significantly lower latency and higher availability. A CDS Global BGP peer enabled server can provide reliable access to services such as Google, Facebook, and Wikipedia*.

When Global BGP is assigned to a Virtual Data Center, the host’s IP address is “broadcast” to all AS networks worldwide with direct peering to CDS. All routing requests to the host’s IP addresses are then directly routed to CDS’ network without any searching, forwarding, and transmitting significantly lowering latency.
