NEC to Showcase its NGN Competence at ITU Telecom World 2006
Tokyo, November 16th, 2006 — NEC Corporation (NEC) today announced that it will participate in ITU Telecom World 2006 (Telecom 2006) being held in Hong Kong from December 4 – 8. This will be the tenth consecutive year NEC has participated in the exhibition since the first one held in 1971.
The company’s slogan for Telecom 2006 is "Experience the Wonder of NGN from NEC." The NEC booth will showcase how NEC’s next-generation network (NGN), based on its world-class technological competences in IT and networking, opens the door to a "ubiquitous networked society” where information is transmitted easily and securely anytime, anywhere and to anyone.
The NEC booth will feature a "Theme Stage" to extend the theme of "NGN, helping to grow a new community," in collaboration with popular Chinese actresses and music. Visitors to the Theme Stage will have the opportunity to learn about the new possibilities and benefits that NGN brings to individual’s lives.
NEC will also exhibit a broad range of NGN service solutions and technologies that embody new lifestyles and businesses introduced on the stage. With the main theme “Convergence”, "Group Communication over Push to Talk”, a new kind of group communication amongst a multitude of terminals that share multimedia contents (whiteboard, web, video, etc.) will be demonstrated. Exhibits focusing on the key concept of "Service Convergence" will showcase Network Service Platform products, Wireless & Optical Transport products, Network Traceability Technologies capable of identifying performance degradation and points of breakdown in large-scale networks, and business-oriented solutions using dual terminals with 3G mobile telephony and wireless LAN. Broadband services/ Triple play (IPTV, IPTV telephone, web) based on NEC’s highly reliable carrier network infrastructure technology and high-grade multicasting technology will be also exhibited. Visitors will be able to view a wide variety of converged services with broadband mobility on the IMS/MMD platforms, High-Speed Packet Access (HSPDA), next-generation wireless access technologies, and so on. The service platforms and IT infrastructure technology to be required by the telecom carriers in the NGN era will be also introduced.
PaPeRo, NEC’s next-generation Partner-Personal-Robot, will be on display alongside a 3D facial recognition system designed to secure working environments. Both are key for realizing a “ubiquitous networked society.”
NEC will distribute outlines for these Telecom 2006 exhibits in real time to guests at NEC’s "C&C Users Forum & iEXPO2006" exhibitions to be held concurrently in Japan. This will be accomplished with "Finestream," an NEC image-distribution technology (H.264 codec) for distributing high-resolution images and sound over IP networks.
