Pilot projects should be carried out to connect telecommunications, radio and TV, and Internet networks from 2010 to 2012. Based on the pilot projects, other projects should be established to connect the three networks comprehensively from 2013 to 2015.
China is expected to make substantial progress in integrating telecom, radio and TV, and Internet networks this year. The aim is to promote the development of all three sectors and domestic consumption in related industries.
At this year's China Content Broadcasting Network, or CCBN, integration of the three networks is the main topic for almost every exhibitor. They say the Chinese government's message to develop this sector has been clearer than ever. There is no reason not to tap into this market.
In the next two years, China will carry out pilot programs to connect telecom, Internet, and TV and Radio networks. After that, the three networks will be comprehensively connected by 2015.
