NTT Advanced Technology Corporation

NTT Advanced Technology Corporation (hereinafter NTT-AT, head office: Kawasaki city, Kanagawa prefecture, President and CEO: George Kimura) and NTT Communications (China) (hereinafter, NTT Com China) are pleased to announce that, as of November 1, 2017, they have entered into a basic agreement to begin collaboration on system monitoring and maintenance services.

Through this collaboration, NTT-AT's advanced maintenance and operation expertise cultivated over many years of large-scale system maintenance and operation, and NTT Com China's multilingual support in Japanese, Chinese and English, and its IT service management are combined, taking advantage of the strengths of both sides to form the basis for responding to the needs of diverse global markets through primary and secondary system maintenance.


Currently, many Japanese companies are advancing the development of services in the global market, and the need for a global response for systems maintenance and operation is increasing year by year. ICT (Information and Communication Technology) for ensuring the reliability and continuity of maintenance operations 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, is now indispensable for mission-critical operations of a wide variety of companies.

In this situation, based on the advanced technical strength it has cultivated as a member of the NTT Group, NTT-AT has been responding to the diverse corporate needs in the ICT era, accompanying the recent expansion of cloud business and heightened security monitoring needs to develop consistent systems from system development, system construction and maintenance operations, to data center/ cloud (ICT–24 cloud) and SOC (Security Operation Center) development. NTT Com China was established in October 2004 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of NTT Communications in order to provide IT solutions business for global companies, including Japanese companies operating in China. Based on the global IT strategy of our global headquarters, they provide optimum solutions based on the current situation in China and provide a high level of quality service with strong human resources.

In this business environment, both NTT and NTT Com China, as members of the same NTT Group, have started collaboration, utilizing each other’s strengths and abundant achievement records in the fields of monitoring and maintenance with the aim of expanding into the global market.

The Aim of Collaboration

Since April of 2006, NTT Com China has been providing system monitoring and maintenance services 24 hours a day 365 days, providing high quality maintenance services based on introducing multilingual support in Japanese, Chinese and English languages as well as IT service management.

At this time, we are taking advantage of NTT-AT's advanced expertise in the fields of network, security and cloud services, and NTT Com China's multi-lingual globalization in Japanese, Chinese and English, to provide a collaboration that utilizes these strengths to provide high quality services that respond to the needs of diverse global markets through primary and secondary system maintenance in the operation of IT services.

This collaboration between the two companies will both strengthen the structure for global expansion of NTT-AT, which has been widely offering products and services based on the state-of-the-art technology of NTT Laboratories, while also leading to the development of new customers for NTT Com China, matching the needs of both companies.
