Mr. Stephen Ho, Chief Executive Officer of CITIC Telecom CPC, said, "The cloud computing data center in Baoshan, Shanghai is just the first step in our commitment to launch IDC projects in major cities after securing the China IDC license, while other first-tier cities such as Beijing and Guangzhou will be the next. STNC's operational experience in data center infrastructure brings reliable operational support for our data center in Baoshan. The advanced design of the Baoshan data center also fulfills our strict requirements on the technical capability of our IDC.
