  • You can accelerate business collaboration with flexible networks
  • pdf
  • Network technology to support 2020 and beyond
  • Service companies exist in business environments that demand correspondence to various changes caused by the diversification of devices and the progress in adapting IoT technology. In cooperation with you, we provide your business with competitive and innovative services using virtualization network technologies.

  • One-stop operation providing automatic service creation and management
  • pdf
  • One-stop operation facilitates collaboration services
  • Our One-stop operation technique makes it possible for service providers to easily integrate complex services and utilize service monitoring. The application programming interface (API) orchestrator centrally accepts applications for various combinations of multiple services and conducts the setups for all services by using APIs. This technique can reduce complications and operation costs for service providers.

  • pdf
  • Technical challenges in network management for B2B2X services
  • For B2B2X growth opportunities, the integrated network management technology for multi-domains (access networks/core networks/OTN/data centers) and multi-layers (service/logical/physical) is needed. This technology more promptly provides service delivery and status notification for service providers compared with conventional management for each network.

  • You can immediately provide for optimum services to your customers
  • pdf
  • The demonstration of the function that control traffic as a service
  • We are working to realize functions that flexibly control user's traffic when receiving various requests from service providers. This control makes it possible to distribute traffic to the appropriate services according to the traffic volume and traffic content for each terminal. By combining virtualization technology, we can realize dynamic and low cost services.

  • Centralized network security operation for secure and stable network services
  • pdf
  • A network security controller integrating security operations against cyber attacks
  • NTT aims to provide secure networks and various security services to protect end-users and service providers against intensive cyber attacks. We are developing a mechanism to centralize security operations, such as detection, analysis, and security-handling, by using an architecture based on the network security controller, enabling quick and stable network operation and service providing.

  • Protecting everyone from various cyber attacks by cooperating with the latest security and network technology
  • pdf
  • Cyber attack detection and cooperation control technology in carrier networks
  • Today, attackers have the high ground position in the cyber security world. To remove this superiority, we aim to achieve a cyber-risk-free network providing safe and secure network service to fight various threats with a drastic approach that interlocks the latest security and network technology mutually, which is different from the conventional approach.

  • Collaborative and hands-on API environment for service providers
  • pdf
  • R&D's service collaboration platform “ATELIER N”
  • The NTT labs have been running a trial project called Atelier N to contribute to quick and low-cost business development, whereby developers can prototype services utilizing various APIs developed by NTT labs and function providers. NTT labs are promoting service trials through Atelier N, aimed at creating new collaboration services in our B2B2X business model.

  • Next generation mobile communications system (5G)
  • pdf
  • Introduction to DOCOMO activities toward 5G
  • NTT DOCOMO proposes a future concept for the next generation mobile communications system (5G). Ongoing 5G experimental trials within DOCOMO and with world-wide vendors, efforts to the 5G Trial Sites and creation of new services using 5G with partner companies from various industries are also introduced.

  • Transmute upwelling information into prismatic flows to accommodate various usage purposes
  • pdf
  • Assistance network for various data stream processing types
  • Providing services such as security and nursing-care services requires processing a lot of information for various uses, e.g., for immediate on-site use or for carrying out remote inspections. A data stream assistance network, jointly developed with SECOM, helps in such various types of processing by distributing, transforming and reserving the data streams within the network.

  • Robust ICT service against demand fluctuation for the 2020s
  • pdf
  • New server / network technology to achieve sub-device-level flexible ICT resource allocation
  • Ericsson and NTT are conducting joint-PoC verification of new server and network technology enabling flexible allocation of server and network resources for service providers. The technology allocates server resources on the sub-device-level in real time according to the fluctuation in demand of applications provided by service providers and achieves new services in the 2020s.
