Although NTT still dominates Japanese telecoms infrastructure, KDDI and Softbank are steadily taking steps to compete more efficiently and effectively with NTT, and in the past year have seen a substantial advantage over the incumbent in net additions to their networks. All operators have moved to IP-based Next Generation Networks after substantial investments. This report examines Japanese national and international infrastructure including submarine cables; CATV; satellite TV and digital terrestrial TV markets; and cloud computing.

Key Developments:
substantial increase in international bandwidth as domestic and international consortiums invest in infrastructure;
increased investment in data centres and cloud computing; assessment of infrastructure changes needed for earthquake resistant networks;
switchover to digital television;
over 50% Cable TV household penetration;
green investments in renewable energy facilities
ASE submarine cable system brought into service in 2013;
SJC submarine cable system became operational in 2013;
APG submarine cable system set for launch in late 2014.

Companies covered in this report include:
NTT; KDDI; Softbank; Google; Fujitsu
