Theme : Next Generation Network
| Japan Gigabit Network
(JGN) is a nationwide, next generation, very high-speed
telecommunications network that is made widely available for use at
universities, research institutions, venture businesses, local
governments. TAO has
developed and continue to maintain the JGN . It is a 4 year long
(1999.10 to 2000.03) joint collaborated project. The group members
University, Keio University,
Yamanashi University, University of Aizu, Chiba Institute of Technology
. This project is under supervision of
Prof. Norio Shiratori . |
| About JGN
- The Japan Gigabit Network (JGN) is an optical-fiber
telecommunications network that makes high-speed information
transmission possible. The gigabit class network is 1,000 times
faster than megabit, making it one of the fastest telecommunications
systems of its kind.
- Focusing on the research and development side of basic
technologies to achieve an advanced information and communications
society, the Telecommunications Advancement Organization
developed. It is a nationwide, next generation, very high-speed
telecommunications network that is made widely available for use at universities, research institutions etc.
- Progressing towards the new age of
"Gigabit" telecommunications network. the JGN is expected to be widely used for research and development of very high-speed networking and
high-performance application technologies. The JGN is also expected to
create ne business opportunities and telecommunications services.
To Shiratori Lab.
|The JGN can instantly transmit large-capacity multimedia
information, such as highly-precise image information, to any remote
area. The JGN can also be widely used for research and development
in various fields. |
- The operation and control technologies
of the very high-speed telecommunications network that are
foundation and support mechanism for the next
