Based on the network resources of the domestic telecom giants, the dedicated access will establish a dedicated data link that can quickly access the International Communication Service Import and Export Bureau, effectively improving the internet access quality and experience of corporate users.

The launch of the service is part of a national strategy for the special area, to promote the new infrastructure of Shanghai and provide the opportunity for the city to explore a new route for international communications services.

At the same time, it is expected to improve the international business environment to help Shanghai further open up and develop its export-oriented economy.

The current global access delay for Shanghai internet data access is expected to decrease by about 18 percent, reaching the level of neighboring developed countries and regions.

The packet loss rate of international visits in most directions is expected to drop to below 1 percent, reaching the level of developed countries in Europe and the United States. Using dedicated access to the internet is expected to greatly enhance the user perception of the internet compared.

Meanwhile, Lin-gang has released a consultation paper on its own Fiber-To-The-Room - or FTTR - standards, the first of its kind in China.

This makes Shanghai the country's first city to enter the era of FTTR optical networks, adding momentum for a big boost to the network and service level of Shanghai as a "dual gigabit broadband city" and further assist its digital transformation.

At the same time, the Lin-gang Special Area Administration released its 14th Five-Year Plan for the Innovation and Development of the Digital Economy Industry in the Lin-gang Special Area.

Under the plan, the special area will accelerate the development of innovation and the agglomeration of the digital economy industry, as well as further implement the development strategy for the digital industry during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25).

It will adhere to the principle of "innovation leadership". The area will pursue the "digital industrialization and digital transformation of industry" and perform major tasks - namely, building an international data port, perfecting a data element system and building a digital enterprise matrix and digital industry high ground.

In addition, Lin-gang will consolidate its four bases of "network infrastructure, computing infrastructure, new technology infrastructure and intelligent infrastructure".

It will focus on five industrial parks - the "Information Flying Fish" global digital economy innovation island, the Oriental IC Port, Life Science Blue Bay, Large Aircraft Park and Marine Innovation Park - to create Lin-gang's digital manufacturing brand.

It will also give itself full play as a leading demonstration area for Shanghai's ambitions to become an international digital hub.
