A new Okinawa Open Laboratory has been established by NTT Communications, NEC and IIGA Co. with a mission to develop software-defined networking (SDN) and cloud computing technologies.

The laboratory, which is located in Okinawa IT Shinryo Park in Okinawa Prefecture, will invite engineers from private companies and academic organizations in Japan and other countries to work at the facility on the development of SDN and cloud-computing technologies and verification for commercial use. 

The three companies set up the Okinawa Open Laboratory in cooperation with Okinawa Prefecture, which aims to become a leading ICT base in Asia. Yukio Ito, Senior Vice President and concurrently Director of Service Infrastructure at NTT Com, has been named Director of the new facility.
