JGN (Japan Gigabit Network) is composed of Gigabit Network Communication Circuit and Shared Use Research Facilities (Gigabit Laboratory). Four years have passed since the operation of JGN in 2000. And JGN has been used by a large number of research organizations for R&D.


1.Basic Policy

Regarding Next Generation Ultra High-Speed Network, Promotion Conference will do the following:

  1. Develop applicable fields and indicate the effectiveness of Ultra High-Speed Network widely.
  2. Clarify technological, systematic, social and other challenges and indicate the methods of solution and direction.
  3. Demonstrate the practicability by forming partnership with industry, academia, government, and on an international basis as well as promoting technical development.

Since 2003 is the final year for JGN project, promote integrated R&D in order to put together the results of 5-year project and develop these achievements proactively.

Also towards the development of ubiquitous network in the future, in order to contribute to the structure of the next generation research and development network, which will be a base of test bed , utilize knowledge and know how which was gained from the JGN project fully and promote development and penetration of the high network technology, and application technology, which will conduce to the realization of ubiquitous network society.
