Cisco Chen Shiwei: take network as the platform and create the convergence of four networks
November 18th, “Digital China 2000 Worldwide Partner Conference” was held in Chengdu this morning. It has invited more than 130 internationally known IT manufacturers and 2000 domestic large channel sellers. Chen Shiwei, president & CEO of Cisco, Greater China, said that China shall push forward the cloud computing and the three-network convergence, and in fact, what we proposed in Cisco is the four-network convergence, which is the language, video, wireless and data that I have just said.

Chen Shiwei: I still think that I am very young. We have been in cooperation with Digital China for 13 years. First, I want to thank to Digital China for the past 13 years in which you have offered great support to our Cisco system. Today we are full of appreciation for participating in your ten-year grand meeting. Today I feel both moved and ashamed. What makes me moved is because of the gathering of many old friends who are invited by Mr. Guo. I also feel thankful for the chance to come to this grand meeting.
“Share together by you and me” is what I like the best. Because we will meet many chances in the future, I agree that it is not the right time for us to struggle alone and we should cooperate to develop an overall plan that conforms to the development of the enterprises and the country in the future.
During the past ten years, our Cisco system has changed greatly. From a company selling products and routers in a haphazard way to one that takes the network as the platform and uses such framework to drive the plan of this industry. Five years ago, we carried out many researches and developments in which we use the concept of one network to create our future development direction.
Today, what our users and clients require is not only the data, so why we should push forward the framework of the network and why we take the network as the platform? Because our users tell us that the future network shall have language, data, video as well as mobile. Cisco has finished all these things. And in the future, the cloud computing and three-network convergence will also be promoted. In fact, what we said in Cisco is the four-network, namely language, video, wireless and data.
Therefore, we have had such conditions today, and we hope that, instead of just having a meeting in Chengdu, our friends in the field of IT shall make common efforts to create a more successful and intelligent country. Today we talk about many intelligent cities and transportation, but in fact, you should see it as a whole, from cloud computing to network platform, and from one internet to intermediate analysis. I am happy to be here and we believe that our cooperation will promote the revolution in the whole industry and then propel the transformation of the whole country. As a platform, ICT has great effect on such promotion, so we hope that we will have a closer cooperation with Digital China in the following ten years and we also hope to cooperate with the partners in the front rows so as to create a win-win situation. Thank you!
