"Working through the Great Firewall "Presentation is ideal for publishers to learn about the major performance differences in hosting game and application servers in mainland China for China end-users … than hosting game and application servers outside mainland China for China end-users thru the GFW and the performance implications.

Attendees will surely gain knowledge and an understanding from attending the "Working through the Great Firewall "Presentation of having games & applications being usable & playable for end-users in mainland China.

China is the largest & fastest growing market in the world with 100’s of millions of potential customers. All too often, businesses settle on going with a 2000ms - 3000ms high latency and low availability server hosting solutions … these lower cost hosting solutions often will not work or monetize very well, this is due to servers either being outside the GFW and or server traffic is running on oversubscribed networks.
