ITU-T
NTT’s “Vision for a New Optical
Generation”
<Broadband leading to the world of
resonant communication>
In the new-generation communications environment,
people, as well as companies and other groups in
society, will:
- become “interactive,” using broadband;
- be connected by a ubiquitous network, “anytime,
anywhere and with anyone or anything”;
- enjoy superior usability that is “secure, reliable and
simple”.
 What are the aims?
 For a carrier to provide added value to the broadband
and ubiquitous network environment, by network services.
 To create a rich variety of new services and business
opportunities that capitalize on such features.

Network services envisaged for
the NGN
end-to-end communication services
ITU-T  Interactive
 Diversification in service features, such as security, service level
guarantees, and presence information.
 Penetration of easy-to-use terminals is a key issue.
 New means of communication that will replace telephony in the
future.
 Video
delivery services
 Appropriate business models are being explored which take
account of copyright issues.
 Amid the convergence between telecommunications and
broadcasting, and in light of the soon-to-start digital terrestrial b/c,
the b/c industry is highly interested. Potential demand is certain.
 Virtual
Private Network (VPN) services
 The diversification of means of network access, and the need for
flexible network configuration have made highly value-added VPN
a key to differentiation.
 Information
9-10 July 2003
home appliance control services
 Widespread use of cellular phones and PDAs allows users to be
always connected.
 Initial targets are remote control of home appliances and home
security services
 Future targets include diverse services using RFID tags and
various sensors.

Desired standardization areas
Home Gateway
ITU-T
• Home GW functions are parts of NGN and will be
implemented in stand-alone unit or in a broadband router, PC,
or home appliance.
• Home GW firmware can be down-loaded from the service
provider.
• To support fair competition and marketing, basic interfaces
around the home GW should be well standardized.

Desired standardization areas
Photonic network
• Tens of Tbit/s throughput will be needed in NGN.
• New core network architecture should be
discussed and standardized.
• NTT is studying “multilayer pass-through
network architecture” as one proposal for this.

Conclusions
ITU-T Amid the radically evolving telecommunication
industry environment, NTT places its business
priority on “building broadband and ubiquitous
networks.”
NTT R&D continues to develop network services
with the most advanced technology available,
incorporating both de jure and de facto standards.
NTT has a vast amount of accumulated know-how
and experience, and firmly intends to make the most
of these assets in pursuing its R&D programs.
