NTT Data expects IOWN to move computing from the era of electronics into photonics, where optical networks run into, and through, integrated circuits. NTT says its IOWN research will take technology beyond the current generation of telecommunications and computing, and into photonics, large-scale digital twin simulations and ultra-realistic UI/UX.
NTT Group also reports it is investing JPY 211.3 billion annually into its R&D initiatives. The investment covers basic materials science to the development of deep learning technology and quantum computing. The company also says that a key part of its research is advanced communications and computing, and this forms the core of the IOWN initiative.
NTT, Intel and Sony earlier announced the formation of the IOWN Global Forum. Most recently, Microsoft partnered with NTT to collaborate and develop IOWN technologies in 2020 and beyond.
In December 2019, NTT and Microsoft agreed to deliver secure services to help enterprise customers accelerate their digital transformation. The alliance will combine NTTâs ICT infrastructure, managed services and cybersecurity expertise, with Microsoftâs cloud platform and AI services. The partnership will focus on the creation of a Global Digital Fabric; development of digital enterprise services built on Microsoft Azure; and co-innovation of next-generation technologies in the area of all-photonics network and digital twin computing.
