At NTT Network Service Systems Laboratories, we leverage state-of-the-art technology focused on optics with the goal of making the Innovative Optical and Wireless Network (IOWN) concept a reality. We carry out research and development on infrastructure technologies for architecture and network systems that allow for implementation of a network and information processing infrastructure with high-speed, high-capacity communication and vast computing resources that exceed the limits of existing infrastructure, and on communications traffic, quality and operations technologies.

In recent years, increasing digitalization across all industries has rapidly fueled demand for Information Communication Technology (ICT), which requires the creation of network services able to maximize the use of new technologies such as IoT and AI to create new value.In order to respond to these kinds of sudden changes, the Laboratories are responsible for research and development of infrastructure technologies for creating network services that will support the information and communications of the future.

Specifically, we work on:
(1) Planning and promoting network architecture research and global collaboration;
(2) Research and development of transport system configuration, network control and network processing infrastructure technologies;
(3) Construction of innovative concepts and theories as well as building new network value based on communications traffic, quality and operational infrastructure technologies.

At NTT Network Service Systems Research Laboratories, we will continue to engage in a wide range of activities, from planning research strategies to the research and development of infrastructure technologies using researchers with a variety of areas of expertise to contribute to the development of NTT and of Japan's information and communications industries.
