The roles that communication network played thus far were to connect people, and to connect information and people by rapidly delivering vast amounts of information to clients. Today, however, communication network is expected to contribute to the development of the industry as a whole through the creation of new values and new markets beyond the existing domain and industry boundaries. This is achieved by providing valuable information obtained from various things.
In response to these changes in external environment and to the expectations of society, the Information Network Laboratory Group devised a new network R&D vision called NetroSphere concept that aims to create flexible and smart networks for offering relevant values to our partners. This involves driving the advancement of future networks invented in Japan through collaborations that include advanced research on AI and other cutting-edge technologies, as well as the provision of cloud application services, beyond the confines of existing network services and systems.
We will carry out our daily tasks in research and development-armed with a keen awareness of the responsibility to carve out the future society with our own hands, buoyed by the pride and joy of creating technologies that are actually implemented in society, and inspired by our big dreams for the future.
