OOL Overview

Message from Representative Director

Okinawa Open Laboratory celebrated its 10th anniversary in May 2023.
Under the concept of "forming an international R&D base in Okinawa", with the aim of practical application and dissemination of the next-generation ICT infrastructure technology, "Convergence of SDN and Cloud Computing" was the research theme of our activities in May 2013. Since then, amid the remarkable evolution and changes of technologies such as IoT, AI, 5G, drones, and big data utilization, we have been able to continue our activities for 10 years, as a globally unique research institute that brings together companies and organizations that usually do not have many opportunities to collaborate, and openly promotes research activities beyond the boundaries of industries and organizations. We believe that this is the result of the continuous support and cooperation of all members and related parties who support the activities of Okinawa Open Laboratory. Once again, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to all of you.

Since its establishment, our laboratory has pursued the ideal state of technology, industry, and society as a place for open technology and engineers to interact and fuse from the perspective of use cases and has been engaged in various activities. Amid the need to realize a sustainable society and to work on well-being, expectations and demands for ICT and digital technology in industry and society are increasing more and more. In our laboratory, we will continue to focus on providing use cases and places for interaction, challenge various activities, and promote technical and social contributions.


We look forward to your continued support and guidance.

Yukio Ito
