Operator Award: Embracing Cloud (Graphic: Business Wire)
NTT Com was awarded for initiatives including an edge-computing platform that will provide low latency, low cost, and guaranteeing privacy required for technologies including AI, IoT and 5G. The envisioned platform is expected to accelerate local 5G and the development of AIoT ecosystem (combination of AI and IoT) for advanced uses such as smart factories.
The Network Transformation Awards recognize the current year’s outstanding technologies and thought leadership among telecom providers and vendors who help to accelerate network transformation. The Operator Award: Embracing Cloud is given to the telecom provider that takes the leading role in developing cloud infrastructure and other advanced cloud initiatives. Winners are selected through a process of rigorous and holistic judgment by analysts and experts from the global telecommunications industry.
Driven by the ongoing evolution of cloud and WAN technologies, corporate ICT systems are undergoing a paradigm shift to hybrid ICTs, including hybrid cloud and hybrid WAN. Also, emerging IoT and AI applications, such as self-driving vehicles and remote control of industrial machinery, will require increasingly advanced functions for high-speed data processing close to sites where data is actually used.
To support such hybrid ICT environments, NTT Com is also preparing to launch the tentatively named VxF Platform, which will support functions for traffic control and security. Separately, NTT Com launched the Flexible InterConnect service for interconnections in 2019. Furthermore, NTT Com is developing lightweight edge locations for deployment at client sites to locally process data, format data and perform AI inference. Through such initiatives, NTT Com is working to deliver increasingly low-latency, low-cost and guaranteed-privacy edge computing.
Going forward, NTT Com will continue to help clients achieve digital transformation and respond to their wide-ranging needs for hybrid ICT.
