NTT Advanced Technology Corporation (NTT-AT) was founded in 1976 as a subsidiary of NTT, the largest telecommunications service provider in Japan. Since then it has grown rapidly, largely due to its close links with NTT Laboratories and its success in the technology transfer business. In the 1990s, the advent of the multimedia age caused our business to expand explosively. It now covers almost the entire range of information and telecommunications technologies, including a variety of research/consulting services, sales of new products and system/network integration services based on state-of-the-art technologies.
As the 21st century begins, the industrial world is facing fierce competition on a global scale.To survive in this increasingly competitive world, companies must take a hard look at such issues as how to create new markets and how to develop and introduce competitive products and technologies.
