NTT to go NGN

4 Apr 2006

According to the Monday edition of the Nikkei Business Daily, Japanese giant NTT will begin commercial trials this December of a next-generation network (NGN) based on IP technology. Testing will be conducted by regional carriers NTT West and NTT East in the greater Tokyo metropolitan area and in Osaka. NTT claims that its NGN will allow consumers to exchange video, with a picture resolution on a par with high-definition television. The telco plans to launch full NGN services sometime during 2007.
