Realizing a robust network for the Beyond 5G/6G era

Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation and KDDI Corporation signed a basic agreement to standardize the optical network field. The agreement is designed to standardize and promote the use of both companies’ strengths in optical networking technology. This includes their respective strengths in optical transmission technology and mobile network technology. The aim is to encourage open innovation with partners around the world and work towards standardization to spread innovative communication techniques around all-photonics networks around the world.

NTT and KDDI have long led the research and design of optical networks in Japan. The companies will collaborate on research and development of a high-capacity optical communication system for domestic backbone transmission lines.
