Japan Gigabit Network
-----instant transmission of information ----

Theme : Next Generation Network Architecture
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 are, Tohoku University, Tokyo University, Kochi University, Keio University, Iwate Prefectural 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 (TAO) 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.
Goal
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 Generation Internet.
  • High-performance applications for digital museums using virtual reality.
  • High-speed Telemedicine systems that transmit visual medical data for real-time treatment of patients.
