NTT and Chunghwa Telecom cooperate on all-photonics network

News

Communications companies NTT Corporation and Chunghwa Telecom have signed an agreement to advance international network connectivity through the Innovative Optical and Wireless Network (IOWN), proposed by NTT. In the future, with IOWN's communication technology centred on the All-Photonics Network, the companies aim to realise international network connectivity between Japan and Taiwan and to collaborate in IOWN-related businesses and security.

NTT has proposed the IOWN concept, which is a network and information processing infrastructure that the company says can provide high-speed, high-capacity communications, and substantial computing resources by utilising innovative photonics technologies. NTT has established the Innovative Optical and Wireless Network (IOWN) Global Forum, in which Chunghwa Telecom participates, to promote the realisation of new communication infrastructure.

According to NTT’s website, a major component of IOWN is an All-Photonics Network, which is intended to reduce power consumption, improve transmission capacity, and reduce transmission delays. NTT says that photonic circuits are part of the key to achieving this network, with silicon photonics being one field of research that the company is engaged in.

Akira Shimada, President & CEO of NTT Corporation, said: “With outstanding technology and extensive global business experience, we expect that NTT and Chunghwa Telecom working together on IOWN's international communications will strongly accelerate IOWN's technology development and service deployment. Based on the achievements of NTT and Chunghwa Telecom, we hope to expand IOWN in various other countries.”

“As Taiwan's leading telecommunications company, Chunghwa Telecom is pleased to sign the IOWN cooperation memorandum with NTT, Japan's leading telecommunications company,” said Shui-Yi Kuo, Chairman & CEO of Chunghwa Telecom. “Chunghwa Telecom agrees with the vision of IOWN's innovative technologies, and will continue to uphold the brand spirit of "Always Ahead" and implement the corporate sustainability goals of ESG energy conservation, actively invest in innovative research and development, and bring people with more diversified and convenient network and services.”
