来源:中国日报网站 2005年6月13日

China Education and Research Network (CERNET) has launched the "New Network Campus" program, which is based on the wide use of laptop computers in the prestigious Qinghua University.

According to a 3-year-plan, CERNET will build wireless campus networks in 100, 200 and 500 institutions of higher learning in 2005, 2006 and 2007.

In the meantime, CERNET will work with computer giants Lenovo, IBM, HP, DELL and SAMSUNG to supply cheaper brand-name laptops to students. The computers may be cheaper by several thousand yuan (US$1 equals 8.27 yuan) than the market prices.

CERNET will provide 50,000 laptops to students this year and 300,000 more in 2006, according to the plan.

With the scheme in operation, college students may enjoy network teaching platform, IP phone call, IPTV and other special services. Students will be able to work in dorm rooms, classrooms, dining halls and libraries and surf the Internet from anywhere on campus using the wireless network.
