Overview

 In the coming Beyond 5G era, in order for Society5.0 to realize the transformation of advanced social systems, it is required to build innovative networks capable of responding to the rapid increase in communication traffic, securing communication quality, and diversification of services.
The Network Research Institute will conduct R&D on computing and AI-enabled networking technology, next-generation wireless technology, photonic network technology, optical and radio convergence technology, space communication fundamental technology, and resilient ICT technology as key technologies for this purpose. The Institute will also aim to promote standardization activities, disseminate R&D results, and implement them in society.

Organization

  • Advanced ICT Device Laboratory
    The Advanced ICT Device Laboratory is an open innovation platform for industry-academia collaboration supporting information and communication device technologies. We promote R&D based on advanced hardware development technologies such as designing, manufacturing, implementation, and evaluation of devices aiming to invent functionally integrated ICT device technologies for using all wavebands including light wave and radio frequency.
  • Network Architecture Laboratory
    We conduct R&D on innovative network architecture for the timely delivery of highly reliable information through high-quality network services, while optimally utilizing the computing resources of network infrastructure when a variety of network services coexist in the Beyond 5G era.
  • Photonic ICT Research Center
    We conduct R&D on ultra-high-capacity photonic networks to support the rapid growth in communication traffic, access technologies that harmoniously integrate optical and wireless communications, and flexible network technologies for the Beyond 5G era.
  • Wireless Networks Research Center
    Looking ahead to the Beyond 5G era, we conduct R&D and disseminate results thereof, targeting wireless network technology that will globally extend three-dimensional seamless communication networks including the ocean and space through the integration of terrestrial and non-terrestrial networks, and ensure connectivity in all circumstances and environments.
  • Resilient ICT Research Center
    We focus on ICT that is resilient to disasters and failures, and useful in such times, for example, pandemics. These technologies are used to communicate in severe physical environments, measure natural environments, and detect signs of failure in optical networks and restore their functions. We conduct R&D in these areas and promote their implementation in society to improve resilience on a global scale.
