While accelerating the deployment of 5G networks, the three major operators are also accelerating the construction of data centers. Currently, the first phase of the China Telecom Central Data Center project held a groundbreaking ceremony in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province. China Telecom’s central data center with a total investment of 3.4 billion yuan can accommodate about 28,000 cabinets. It will focus on optical fiber networks, cloud computing data management centers, IDC data management centers, and large-channel transmissions, providing a full range of services for governments, enterprises and individuals with intelligent and information services.
Prior to this, on June 30, the first phase of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Big Data Intelligent Computing Center project with a total investment of 10.2 billion completed the first batch of racks for the delivery of four data centers and two power center buildings; On August 20, China telecommunications national integrated big data center (Ningxia Zhongwei) node was officially unveiled.
In addition, at the "2021 Yuntian Conference" held recently, the node of China Mobile's National Integrated Big Data Center (Ningxia Zhongwei) was officially unveiled. The construction of the Shandong Qingdao West Coast Data Center Project undertaken by China Unicom and the first water-cooled big data center project in Hubei Province have also started construction.
Big data centers have become an urgent need in the 5G era. The three major operators conform to the development trend of the digital era, relying on the advantages of network bandwidth and computer room resources to innovate and create a new information infrastructure with cloud-network integration and green and low-carbon information. Take China Telecom as an example. China Telecom has fully implemented the strategy of "Cloud to Digital Transformation". The scale of a new type of cloud-network integrated information infrastructure with 5G and cloud as the core is beginning to appear. Currently, it has formed a "2+4+31+X+O" strategy. "The resource layout includes more than 700 data centers, 430,000 IDC racks for external services, more than 300 domestic cloud resource pools, more than 30 overseas cloud nodes, and more than 3,000 edge nodes to build cloud-side collaboration capabilities to create a super computing power foundation. China Telecom's Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei big data base with an investment of 10.2 billion yuan has vigorously promoted the application of new energy-saving technologies in data centers, using distributed lithium battery DPS (uninterruptible power supply), backplane air conditioning, indirect evaporative cooling and other technologies in phases. At the same time, it is actively exploring the introduction of triple power supply and waste heat recovery technologies to fully realize the green and efficient development of data centers.
Operators rely on huge and complete data centers to provide strong support for urban intelligence, governance intelligence, and digital industrialization and industrial digitization.
China Telecom continues to make efforts in 5G, big data, cloud services and other fields.
In Zhangzhou, Fujian, China Telecom quickly deployed a big data cloud platform to make appointments for nucleic acid testing in the face of sudden outbreaks in Xiamen and other places;
In Xinjiang, China Telecom’s “Poverty Alleviation Big Data Platform” has improved the intelligence of rural governance;
In Zaozhuang, Shandong, China Telecom and Huawei jointly built an industrial cloud platform to serve local industrial, mining, manufacturing, and logistics companies in Zaozhuang, enabling data to be uploaded to the cloud, reducing corporate investment costs, and improving production efficiency.
China Mobile has accelerated the construction of Yunnan Mobile's second data center and core network disaster recovery center in Yuxi, Yunnan. It has implemented smart inspections in Hongta Group and 5G commercial use such as grid monitoring in China Southern Power Grid.
China Unicom is building a digital rural data center with rural governance data as the core in Ningbo, and developing a digital service platform for rural governance to further help modernize rural governance in Ningbo.
As cloud computing and big data permeate all aspects of life, as providers of digital services, operators will take on more important tasks in creating an efficient and intelligent digital world "base" and promoting the digital transformation of thousands of industries.
