Objective: Network technology is closely linked to the society. Basically, every firm with certain scale needs to set up and manage its network as well as connects to the Internet. This facilitates the coordinations among staff and external communication, including emails, researches on the Internet, instant messages, video messages, share of documents, etc. As a result, professionals in network technology are the most precious resourses in the market. Furthermore, they are expected to become more significant in the near future.

Effect: Same as the previous year, participants of this competition came from secondary schools and universities in Hong Kong and Macau. The competition was divided in to two sections ─ tests on theories and tests on techniques. In the university category, participants competed in groups of three while participants competed in groups of two in the secondary category during the tests on techniques. 26 Macau delegates escorted by Macau CPTTM participated in this competition in Hong Kong. The delegates in the secondary category were awarded 7 gold medals, 4 silver medals and 1 bronze medal . The number of the gold medals is the greatest among the years and this is encouraging.

Reflections from Macau delegates:
'Through this competition, my knowledge in network technology has been enhanced and my interest in it has been aroused at the same time. I believe that I will adore network technology from now on. Last but not least, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the support of Cisco and the diligent guidance of Macau CPTTM.'

' Cleating the cables is not difficult since I have spared my time to practise it in CPTTM. My teammates are also proficient in it.'
