Industry insiders say China -- which has already bought
some of the most powerful equipment available, from
U.S.-based Cisco Systems Inc. and Sprint International,
a unit of Sprint Corp. -- ultimately aims to create a
monolithic Internet backbone, centrally administered,
that minimizes the threat posed by the Internet's
amoeba-like structure. https://mailing-list-archive.cryptoanarchy.wiki/archive/1996/01/d476742e5382cc6a7cf0836d780b40ede4c8354b502691c3f360a56dda1f7e20/
