  • Lower the latency of your application in China with EIP & BGP Pro

    The usual problem for companies with some sort of presence in China is the platform speed for their end users located in the Mainland, this stems from the complexities deriving out the views on how the Internet should work according the Chinese authorities. Why is this? For a big part, China’s view of the internet is as “Internet sovereignty”: the notion that the Internet inside the country is part of the country’s sovereignty and should be governed by the country. This means there are “border controls” regarding telecommunications. This, frequently called “The Great Firewall”, is what legally is actually called “Cyber Security Law of the People’s Republic of China”, or CSL for short. Think of Europe’s GDPR, CSL is China’s own set of regulations.
