28 July 2003 Beijing/Tel Aviv -- The Chinese Academy of Sciences, the premier scientific and medical research institution in the People's Republic of China, has selected the IMX-4E1/V35 inverse multiplexer from RAD Data Communications to enable high speed data transfer between its major research centres.

"The Academy uses the IMX to provide 8-Mbit/s ingress connections split over four multiple, affordable E1 lines, a solution that provides an instant, seamless boost in bandwidth," said Jeremy Zimman, Director of Operations for Greater China at RAD Data Communications. The Academy's research centres and scientists conduct advanced studies related to a wide variety of topics, including pressing health-related issues such as SARS.

The RAD solution was proposed to the Chinese Academy of Sciences by Macroview Telecom, a RAD distributor partner with offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Hong Kong.

"As scientific research expands, the need to share it instantly with colleagues grows and the demand for bandwidth increases as a result," said Stanley Tsang, Executive Director at Macroview. "RAD's inverse multiplexing solution is an ideal, cost-effective way in which valuable scientific data can be transferred between dispersed research institutes that are situated throughout the country."

The China Academy of Science is China's premier scientific institution, with branches that cover every scientific discipline. Founded in 1949, it is China's most prominent academic institution and also serves as a comprehensive research and development centre for the natural sciences and hi-tech.

The Academy comprises five academic divisions, 123 institutes, more than 400 scientific and technical enterprises and more than 20 supporting institutions, including three universities, two printing houses, five centres for the research and development of scientific instruments and five documentation and information centres. The Academy employs more than 60,000 scientists and technicians in all the country's provinces.
