What Is "OOD"

The trend on ICT infrastructure technologies that are open and software-based has affected service users, providers, and operators in every area on the basis of actual use cases.


Moreover, ICT infrastructure technologies have been advancing as an infrastructure for every innovation while integrating with 5G, AI and IoT technologies that are expected to dynamically change the utilization for industries.


Enterprises and organizations who are considering digital transformation are trying to utilize these technologies effectively in the true sense of the word, such as analyzing and renovating the current business process and rules by introducing the concept of DevOps.


Furthermore, this year’s remarkable growth is data driven industry innovation.  Industry involved activities are fully in progress and real innovation has occurred such as open data activities in transportation industry.


Okinawa Open Laboratory (OOL) was established in 2013 — a globally unique R&D institute based on the concepts of combining SDN/NFV technologies with cloud computing, conducting concrete implementations (use cases), and open source.  This year OOL has promptly taken the above trends into research direction, expanded the research area and has been tackling to data driven ICT utilization area also.


​During the seven years of OOL’s history, we have conducted core technology research, developed and operated test-beds, hosted forums, trained human resources, held international conferences and international exchanges, and researched use cases and markets. Furthermore, we have striven to become more unique and have contributed to the practical application and popularization of advanced core ICT technologies. Starting in 2013, we have been hosting Okinawa Open Days as an independent international event as an opportunity to showcase these efforts. The total number of participants exceeded 1,000 people for the second year straight. Thanks to you, this Okinawa-organized ICT event has grown to enormous size.


Okinawa Open Days has established “bringing together world-changing open technologies and ideas” as a keep concept. It provides various opportunities getting together at Okinawa as a place to discuss new possibilities on the digital era, among participants from various backgrounds — technical development and business, users and providers/operators, top engineers and students, Japanese and international (especially from Asia), and so on. More practical, easy to understand and actively discussible programs will be composed. We are looking forward to seeing many participants from inside and outside of Okinawa.
