At present, we are stepping into the “age of computing power”.With the digitalization of the whole society to accelerate the transformation, especially the 5 g, artificial intelligence, big data, chain blocks, such as technology rise, and remote medical treatment, education wisdom, unmanned, financial technology and application of accelerated fall to the ground, calculate the force plays more and more important role in economic and social development, becomes the new engine to support the digital economy booming.Recently, China has accelerated the distribution of computing power, and a number of national policies related to computing power have been released. At the same time, local governments are also promoting the implementation of relevant plans. Various parties, including basic telecom enterprises, are also actively promoting the construction of computing power network, and the development of computing power industry has entered the “fast lane”.It has become the strategic choice of major countries in the world to promote computing power in a coordinated way, and computing power economy has become the new focus of global strategic competition.In recent years, China attaches great importance to the development of computing power industry, strengthens overall planning and improves top-level design.Recently, a number of policies and programmes related to computing power have been implemented.In December 2021, The State Council issued the 14th Five-year Plan for The Development of the Digital Economy. In terms of “optimizing and upgrading digital infrastructure”, it explicitly required to promote the coordinated development of cloud networks and integrated development of computer networks.We will accelerate the building of a national integrated big data center system that integrates computing power, algorithms, data and application resources.A national integrated computing network has been set up as national hubs in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the Yangtze River Delta, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the Chengdu-Chongqing Twin cities economic circle, Guizhou, Inner Mongolia, Gansu and Ningxia.We will accelerate the implementation of the project of calculating data in the East and calculating data in the West, and promote the coordinated development of cloud networks.We will continue to build green digital centers and speed up efforts to upgrade data centers to conserve energy.We will promote the orderly development of intelligent computing centers, and build a new type of intelligent infrastructure that integrates intelligent computing power, universal algorithms and development platforms.The vigorous development of digital economy needs the strong support of high quality computing power network.It is generally believed that the construction of computing power network needs to break the traditional network-centric mode and reconstruct the network pattern around the data center.At present, China is making great efforts to build the national hub node of the national integrated computing power network, and is committed to building a new computing power network pattern oriented by data flow.In January 2022, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) held a press conference and announced that the NDRC, the Cyberspace Administration of the CPC Central Committee, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and the National Energy Administration had approved the construction of four national hub nodes in Inner Mongolia, Guizhou, Gansu and Ningxia.At the same time, we are cooperating with relevant departments to thoroughly discuss the construction plans of the beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, Yangtze River Delta, Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and Chengdu-Chongqing region.With the acceleration of economic and social digital transformation, not only developed areas and large cities should accelerate the construction of computing power infrastructure, but also the construction of computing power network in small and medium-sized cities.Recently, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission jointly issued by the “about promoting cloud network integration, small and medium-sized cities to speed up the information infrastructure construction notice (hereinafter referred to as the” notice “), clearly put forward to strengthen the small and medium-sized cities network infrastructure and service capacity, promote application infrastructure optimized layout, set up multi-level and systematic calculate power supply system.In terms of actively promoting the integration and innovation of cloud network technology in small and medium-sized cities, the Circular emphasizes the deep integration of IP man and cloud data center network, central cloud and edge cloud in small and medium-sized cities, and the comprehensive integration of cloud, network and edge computing power resources, with the core of realizing efficient computing power scheduling.It can be seen that under the guidance of the policy, China is vigorously promoting the construction of computing power supply system, creating a new computing power industry pattern for the development of digital economy, and laying a solid “computing power base” for the digital transformation of all walks of life.Accelerating the construction of computing power network has become the consensus of the whole industry and even the whole society.Since last year, a number of localities across the country have issued relevant construction plans, clarifying the goal of computing power network construction.Recently, the release of the “14th Five-year” new infrastructure Construction plan in Henan Province has caused concern in the industry.According to the plan, Henan province will lay out computing power infrastructure scientifically and build a “Central Plains computing power network”.In terms of specific measures, Henan province will speed up the construction of computing power network infrastructure such as computing power cooperation, computing power routing and computing power trading, and build a computing power system featuring storage, edge computing, intelligence computing and supercomputing with multiple coordination and integration of data and intelligence, so as to build a Computing power network in central China.At the same time, we will focus on supporting Zhengzhou and Luoyang to build large clusters of green data centers, develop the layout of intelligent computing centers, and build a public computing power service platform.As a matter of fact, as early as last year, several provinces have carried out a layout for computing power network.For example, In October last year, Shandong province issued the Implementation Opinions on Accelerating the Construction of Collaborative Innovation System for Integrated Big Data Centers in Shandong Province, becoming the first province in China to issue provincial standards for new data centers and carry out pilot projects, playing a leading role in demonstration.For example, in December last year, the Development and Reform Commission of Hebei Province and other five departments issued several Policies on Overcoming bottlenecks and Boosting the Healthy Development of digital Economy to further optimize the layout of data center construction in Hebei Province.Jiangsu province issued the Implementation Opinions on the Overall Development of New Data Centers in Jiangsu Province to guide the optimization of the construction and layout of data centers in Jiangsu Province.In addition, Gansu, Yunnan, Shanxi, Tianjin, Guangxi and other provinces have also issued policy documents related to new data centers. For example, Yunnan Province’s “14th Five-year” Big Data Center Development Plan “requires the construction of a new computing power system for the integration of big data centers in the province and the improvement of data aggregation service capabilities for the two Regions.It is worth mentioning that, as the builders and operators of the network, China’s basic telecom enterprises are vigorously promoting the construction of computing power network: China Telecom is steadily promoting the integration of the network with the cloud, and accelerating the construction of intelligent comprehensive digital information infrastructure;China Mobile is speeding up the construction of ubiquitous and integrated computing power network, and creating “computing power service” with a little access and ready-to-use.China Unicom is accelerating the construction of a multi-layer computing power facility system featuring data network collaboration, data cloud collaboration, cloud edge collaboration and green intelligence.Recently, China Mobile officially released the “White Paper on computing power Network security”, from the regulatory needs, security concepts, protection technology and development trends and other aspects of a comprehensive elaboration of the computing power network security development blueprint, and joint industry proposed computing power network security development initiative.It can be seen that from the earliest attention to the concept of computing power network, to the architecture of computing power network, and then to the security of computing power network, the industry’s understanding of computing power network continues to deepen, and the construction process of China’s computing power network continues to accelerate.(Author: Huang Sheyu)
