Japan plays a crucial role in terms of technology innovation for global Next Generation Networks (NGN) solutions. Japan needs to reassess its medium to long-term technology/business direction to optimize market opportunities.
Mind Commerce projects Internet Traffic Demands in Japan to reach 2,800 Gbps by 2017. This meteoric demand entails a necessity of an ultra hi-speed network to support 100 billion terminals, more reliable security features, less power consumption, and personalized service on demand. In 2012 key players launched a full-scale roll out of broadband and ubiquitous services at the onset of increased demands for smart phones and tablet-type handsets.
This research evaluates Japan’s NGN market 2012 – 2017 with consideration to the country’s migration towards ubiquitous network convergence based on i-Japan Strategy set to launch in 2015.

Mind Commerce Publishing's research methodology encompasses input from a wide variety of sources.
We rely heavily upon our Subject Matter Experts (SME) in terms of their market knowledge, unique perspective, and vision. We utilize SME industry contacts as well as previous customers and participants in our market surveys and interactive interviews.
In addition, we rely upon our extensive internal database, which contains modeling, qualitative analysis, and quantitative data. We review secondary sources and compare to our primary sources to update previous findings (for prior version reports) and/or compile baseline information for technology and market modeling.
We share preliminary models with industry contacts (select previous clients, experts, and thought leaders) to verify the veracity of initial modeling. Prior to final report production (analysis, findings, and conclusions), we engage in an internal review with internal SMEs as well as cross-expertise, senior staff members to challenge results.
We believe that forecasts should be prepared as part of an integrated process which involves both quantitative as well as qualitative factors. We follow the following 3-step process for forecasting.
Step 1 - Forecasts Input:
The inputs for the present and historical revenues are derived from industry players. Financial and other quantitative data for individual sub-market categories are derived from original research and tested with interviews with major industry constituents.
