About Us

Introduction

NTT Information Network Laboratory Group is committed to development and deployment of a flexible public information network infrastructure capable of advanced connectivity of things—devices, systems, and services. This involves R&D of wide ranging network technologies that are flexible, smart, and sustainable, and that continues to make NTT the operating company of choice for our partners.

The R&D is tailored to the various needs of our clients and partners by developing timely solutions in the form of network services that provide better protection against disasters and robust reliability for dealing with environmental change. For example, we are now moving to deploy a state-of-the-art network architecture that features fixed-mobile convergence, effective application services, and eco-friendly ultra-low-power design.

The research results from the Information Network Laboratory Group can of course be found in companies throughout the NTT Group. In fact, are well represented in ICT services and social infrastructures the whole world over.

The traditional role of communications is to connect people and to connect people to information. However, the network of the future will need to create new value beyond existing industrial structures and contribute to the sustainable development of society on the whole through optimal and natural connections that include all sorts of people and things.

To meet these expectations, the Information Network Laboratory Group will maximize the potential of the transport network through a conversion to an all-photonics network that will make NTT’S vision of an Innovative Optical and Wireless Network (IOWN)—the communication platform of the future—a reality. At the same time, we will research and develop a flexible network based on a “Cognitive Foundation” that can expedite the provision of services and optimize value chains, and innovative environmental energy technologies for achieving zero environmental impact.

The Information Network Laboratory Group consists of the following four research laboratories.

NTT Network Technology Laboratories

Research and development of network architecture and communication quality optimization technologies

NTT Network Service Systems Laboratories

Research and development of new network services and the network system platforms underpinning those services

NTT Access Network Service Systems Laboratories

Research and development of new access services and access system platforms underpinning those services

NTT Space Environment and Energy Laboratories

Research and development of next-generation energy technologies and technologies enabling resilient environmental adaptation

Together, we are researching and developing innovative information-communication technologies that can surmount conventional technology limits and power-consumption barriers and support the society of the future. These efforts will include close collaboration with researchers and business partners both inside and outside Japan.

Keenly aware of our responsibilities in shaping a new society, we will carry out our daily tasks while taking great pride and pleasure in creating technologies that can actually be implemented in society. As researchers and developers, we have great dreams for the future!
