Innovation for Tomorrow

Innovation for Tomorrow

As we forge ahead through the 21st century, our lives are being transformed by the power of Information Technology & Networking. One company which has the right solutions to meet the challenges of the future. NEC. “Governments understand that globalization is inevitable.” “ The network is changing very, very quickly and is highly dynamic.” “You will begin to see a paradigm shift in the way business is conducted.” NEC is a company with a compelling vision for the future. Kaoru Yano, President of the NEC Corporation says it all started with the past. “ NEC was founded In 1899 more than 100 years ago. One of the most important points is that we are an IT & Networking company. There is no other companies who are pursuing both of these business in parallel.” At NEC the core philosophy begins with the pure concept of innovation. “We are a technology company. And we are proud of our history of innovation. And we will make many innovations to realise this infrastructure for ubiquitous society.” NEC has achieved newly enhanced innovations and solutions based on their extensive experience and cutting edge technology. Innovations which are transforming our very lives…right now… One of the most powerful vector supercomputers ever invented. Super bioplastic materials which will help stem global warming… A single chip image processor for automobiles which identifies objects crucial for making driving safer… The next digital revolution will create an advanced society empowered by the global realization of NGN, the next generation network. “In NGN, computers and servers will be equipped to make the new services. NEC is very strong to make a kind of service platform. That means corporate users who want to start new services through NGN do not need to create most of their service systems by themselves. They can utilize existing service platform and on the top of it, build their own application.” …New IP Core Networks, enabling unprecedented service applications like “Push To Talk”, which allows several people to speak at the same time. …IPTV, providing automated channel subscription, cinema ticketing and TV shopping over traditional telephone lines… …and fiber optic networks, transmitting massive data...at the speed of light. NEC partners with companies to create enterprise solutions which generate streams of revenue, value-added services and business models. This is made possible through NEC’s System Integration. Technicolor, the leading supplier to the Hollywood film industry is facing a challenge – to replace the use of film once and for all. NEC’s digital projector and high availability server provides a complete cinema solutions package. This digital cinema technology brings major benefits to feature producers and consumers alike: Unlike film, the digital picture will not deteriorate with the number of plays. “We are transitioning a business that has been traditionally film based for over a hundred years into a digital based deployment system.” The Fraser Health Authority, the local public health authority, wanted to deliver the best possible healthcare care at the most economic price. NEC came up with a total solution which provided the authority with advanced IP telephony, including a video conferencing solution. In addition, NEC built a comprehensive online medical image database using digital archive technology which is accessed through NEC’s latest monitors. “We have developed what we call the next generation network. It’s a first in Canada where we’ve co-designed an architect, a network, a high speed IP data network that we can now transmit voice, data and video over.” NEC also works with governments and social institutions to improve services to their citizens. The government of San Luis, Argentina, a province with one of the smallest populations in the country is making an ambitious effort to empower its citizenry. NEC provided San Luis with a solution: the Autopista de la Informacion. The Autopista is a fully integrated service platform, including an accessible next generation network infrastructure of optical fiber, radio, and satellite links as well as an online database of government services. Today, schools and people in remote villages can now access critical government and educational services. The Autopista reaches places where there wasn’t even electricity. // The people living in these places today have exactly the same chances as someone living in a town or city like San Luis. It’s a dream come true for us. It’s excellent! Singapore’s Immigration & Checkpoints Authority, engaged NEC to implement an automated border control system utilizing NEC''s most accurate fingerprint identification technology in order to faciliate the entry and exit of travellers. “It’s a system where by the traveller to come in, present their passport, present your fingerprint and then clear immigration without having to see the officer face to face.” Thanks to NEC’s unsurpassed biometrics technology, the immigration process now takes just 12 seconds per person. NEC, helping keep countries safe and secure. Empowered by Innovation NEC believes in the future and all the possibilities it brings. …because it cares about empowering individuals, business and societies. Its advanced solutions are a catalyst for change… and the innovations for tomorrow. Foong/Aquaria We have got one big package which works together…and all the wheels, when it works together, things run smoothly. I think that is what NEC provides. Berchtold/Digital Cinema Whatever it takes, the NEC people are incredibly committed and dedicated to providing high quality and they are there to back it up. Belpaire/Bouygues What we appreciate with NEC is their ability to develop the services for us but also they integrate their services in our natural, and in our IT architecture. NEC: Providing innovative solutions and technology to fulfil the promise of an ubiquitous networking society. “Now is the time for convergence of technology, so it’s the time for NEC.”
